The Fenelon Falls Horticultural Society was founded in 1919 as a member of the Ontario Horticultural Association.
Who We Are
We are local people who love to garden, or just want to learn more about gardening. We grow trees, shrubs, perennials, annuals and vegetables. We think all gardening, even if it’s in a container or on a windowsill, is a joy to share.
What We Do
We offer a number of projects and initiatives in our community. From Youth to Seniors, Floral gardens and Vegetable Gardens, Monthly fun interactive meetings and our annual plant sale.
Our meetings are fun and informative, featuring excellent speakers, garden tours, workshops, pot lucks, excursions, and an annual sale of locally grown hardy plants.
Our Spring plant sale also features a variety of products from local vendors.
We regularly have an information booth at the Country Living Show in April.
Planting and Gardening
We plant and maintain the many public gardens in Fenelon Falls, plus create new ones, to help beautify the Village.
We plant, grow and harvest vegetables in the Victory Garden
at Maryboro Lodge, located at the Fenelon Falls Museum. Our produce harvested, is donated to the Salvation Army Food Bank. Last year alone 800 pounds of produce was donated!
Youth and Senior Programs
We encourage local children and youth to take up gardening and environmental projects, working closely with the Green Team at Langton Public School. We also award an annual scholarship to a high school student who has shown an interest in horticulture.
We explore ways to preserve our environment through native pollinator gardens, rainwater gardening, shoreline restoration, and tree planting.
