Company Information

The Edmonton Horticultural Societyis a volunteer-run, non-profit society committed to fostering an interest in and an understanding and enjoyment of gardening.

For over 100 years, we have been a vital part of gardening in the Edmonton area.

From novice to very experienced, our members are primarily amateur home gardeners. Our activities support our members’ needs, interests and gardening enjoyment, as well as contribute to the beauty of our communities.

Each year we offer a range of activities for members and the general public, such as

  • Exciting and interesting speakers
  • Plant exchanges and sales
  • Garden tours
  • Garden competitions
  • Flower and vegetable (Bench) shows
  • Gardening information and inspiration

Members receive our full-colour, magazine-style newsletter; a regular, emailed news update; discounts at many gardening-related retailers, free admission to our speaker nights and exclusive access to open gardens.

Working in the community is a long-standing EHS tradition. Partnerships with the City of Edmonton enhance public spaces, support local horticulture, and educate and encourage gardeners. We also connect with other like-minded groups.

Volunteers are our strength! Whether organizing a tour, sitting on the Board of Directors, or maintaining perennials and pruning roses on the grounds of the Muttart Conservatory, our volunteers do it all!
