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
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
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
- 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.
