Welcome to the website of the Ottawa Valley Rock Garden & Horticultural Society (OVRGHS).
We are affiliated with both the North American Rock Garden Society (NARGS) and the Ontario Horticultural Association (OHA).
Our Society was formed in November 1992. Although the faces have changed somewhat since then, the objectives of the Society have remained the same: to promote and support "rock gardening" on a non-profit basis.
Over the years, we have built upon the solid foundation of the original group. We offer our members:
- monthly meetings from September through May featuring local, national and international speakers,
- bi-monthly newsletters per year packed with valuable horticultural information,
- an annual seed exchange,
- spring and fall plant sales each year,
- garden tours and field trips,
- workshops and demonstrations,
- centuries of experience accumulated by a community of some of the
keenest gardeners in the Eastern Ontario and Western Quebec area.
New members are always welcome.
