Cornwall Ontario — Over 300 gardening enthusiasts from across the province will gather in Cornwall from July 18th to 20th for the Ontario Horticultural Association’s Annual Conference.
The NAV CENTRE will serve as the host site for the conference, which is being organized by OHA District One consisting of seven local horticultural societies – Cornwall, Williamstown, Martintown, Maxville, Vankleek Hill, Alfred and Russell.
“We are thrilled to be the host community for this provincial event,” said Cornwall Mayor Bob Kilger. “It gives us an opportunity to showcase our City and region and all the great things we have to offer.”
The three-day event will consist of guest speakers, workshops, competitions, and organized tours of gardens and community and historical sites of interest, among other things. The Lost Villages Museum, Cooper Marsh and Glengarry Cheese Factory are among the planned stops on the itinerary, and delegates will also have an opportunity to enjoy a cruise on the St. Lawrence.
“The NAV CENTRE is the largest conference facility in eastern Ontario and it is a beautifully-landscaped site, making it an ideal location for such an event,” said Host District Director Pat Stachon.
Each month throughout the province, gardeners from the 282 OHA Societies meet. They listen to interesting speakers, hold plant sales, participate in day trips, and volunteer their time to work on projects to beautify their communities.
The conference is open to both OHA members and non-members, and all those interested are welcome to attend!
