Calgary Horticultural Society
September 23, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
The Calgary Horticultural Society is a registered charity dedicated to cultivating Calgary’s gardening community. With 4,000 plus members, we are one of the largest and most active gardening organizations. In 2018, the Society celebrates its 110th anniversary. The Society’s mandate has a strong focus on gardening education and offers the knowledge and skills to do it well. The Society is driven by the belief that as the gardening community grows, the city’s quality of life is enhanced, and so is the environment.
From our office just off Macleod Trail, our devoted staff works year-round to develop and deliver quality educational programs that help local gardeners meet the challenges of Calgary’s unique microclimate.
Discover what’s happening at the Society.
Join us for activities in the Society Office and Garden—our traditional yard has been transformed from lawn into an outdoor classroom with raised vegetable beds, three large-sized demonstration compost bins, fruiting trees and shrubs, herbs and flowers. Come to learn about the rain garden, growing vegetables, simple garden irrigation, perennial plants of the year and composting. Chat with a gardener or settle in for storytime. Calgary Horticultural Society volunteers will be on hand to answer your gardening questions, show off the teaching gardens and offer membership sales. Our garden gate is open—we look forward to your visit.
