From novice to expert, we are a group of friendly folks located in Riverdale, across the Don River Valley from downtown Toronto.
In back and front yards, on balconies, or inside the house, we are all curious and love to learn about, and improve, the plants in our lives!
The Riverdale Horticultural Society (RHS) is part of a community committed to create pollinator and bird friendly gardens.
We learn by doing, from each other, and from our guest speakers who are experts in many areas related to horticulture at home and around the world! We encourage everyone to participate, ask questions, share experiences and expertise.
During COVID-19 restrictions, we meet virtually every month to learn from experts in the fields of horticulture & landscaping, ecology, floral design, indoor plant culture, garden photography, even cooking! Our meetings include presentations by experts hands-on-workshops, flower exhibits, photo competitions and more!
Look at information from past presentations by our expert speakers!
