President’s Welcome

This is a milestone year for the Tillsonburg Horticultural Society – a 35-year anniversary of growing, beautifying and nurturing many of our town’s public spaces and our own private gardens.

“The Hort” can be a wonderful way of meeting like-minded people, learning about different aspects of gardening and developing your horticultural talents. Perhaps this is the year for you to celebrate being a part of our society. Celebrate your joy of gardening, your delight in smelling the roses and your wonder of our four seasons. Celebrate your good health with your ability to tend to your gardens.

We are also observing Canada’s 150 birthday. One of our society’s efforts to commemorate this event has been to plant close to 1,300 Canada 150 tulip bulbs in all of the many gardens that we tend. These tulips were specially hybridized by Holland growers and it should be a breathtaking show this spring. Enjoy!

And as we anticipate a wonderful celebratory year, consider volunteering in 2017. Please take a look at the planned projects of the many different and diverse committees. It’s an ambitious line-up so help is always welcome as many hands make light work.

It is my pleasure to serve as your President and through the coming year, I look forward to meeting each and every one of you.
