Peterborough Horticultural Society
The Peterborough Horticultural Society is a “not-for-profit” organization of passionate volunteers who hosted the garden show to raise money so we could gladly give it back to our community for:
- Scholarships to students studying in horticultural or related program
- Community gardens in the surrounding area including Fleming Park which our society has maintained for over 30 years
The garden show was our annual major fundraiser but the best part was, we did it…
For the love of gardening
The first garden show with 70 display booths was in 2001 and presented as a one-time event to celebrate the 140th anniversary of the Peterborough Horticultural Society.
Besides fundraising, why else did we do this for all of those years?
- to inspire you and celebrate the coming of Spring
- to incite (or renew) your passion in gardening
- to help you to learn and grow and ask questions of the hundreds of vendors, speakers and volunteers
- to share our hundreds of combined years of experience and knowledge
- to introduce you to vendors and exhibitors you may not have met
- to show you what is new and innovative in gardening
- to encourage and teach you to grow food and flowers
- to show you how to make the world more beautiful and more healthy through gardening
