The society is a non-profit organization serving the City of Brampton, Ontario, and a member of the Ontario Horticultural Association (OHA), District 15.
A Little Bit of History
The Brampton Horticultural Society was a significant partner with the City of Brampton in their participation in the Communities in Bloom International Award.
In 2007 the Boys and Girls Club “Community Garden” received a Recognition Award for their garden. This garden was a significant programme that we had for several years. Our relationship with the boys and girls in this group was very strong and ongoing for several years.
The judges were extremely impressed with the garden and the youth’s achievements. We were fortunate to have some very dedicated members who spent many hours supporting and encouraging it’s success.
A direct quotation from the judges was
“We noticed the exceptional quality, beauty and care of your property. Thanks for doing your part to make Canada a better place to live. With gratitude and admiration from your Communities in Bloom judges”
Comments were made that this project did more than encourage horticulture, environment etc. It enabled the boys and girls to become well rounded citizens.
