Founded in 1929, DHS is a welcoming group of people of all ages and gardening stages.
The Dunnville Horticultural Society was organized in 1929 through the efforts of several interested citizens. The first public planting was carried out at the paths that diagonally cross Central Park.
Today with the help of dedicated members and volunteers we plant and maintain the town flowerbeds in Dunnville. Become a member to learn about gardening, relax for an evening, make some new friends, hear some excellent speakers, socialize and enjoy some delicious refreshments.
Each year the Dunnville Horticulture Society offers up two $500 Bursaries to students going to post secondary school in the areas of horticulture, agriculture or earth science. One Bursary is open to any Dunnville Horticulture Society Junior member who is actively involved and has contributed a minimum of 10 hours volunteer service with DHS. The other Bursary is open to any Dunnville High School student who has given 10 hours of volunteer service to the Dunnville Horticultural Society.
Winner of the 2023 Junior Member $500 Bursary was Alicia Stavinga. Alicia is attending Loyalist College in Belleville and studying Science.
The Dunnville Horticultural Society is a registered not-for-profit charity. # 886092816RR0001
