Meetings and Events

Monthly Member Meetings are held at the Picton Town Hall (see map below) on the last Wednesday of each month, except January, August and December, from 7:00 – 9:00 pm with earlier starts for special events. Non-members are always welcome to attend for a small donation at the door.

Each meeting features a guest speaker, a Mini Show (see details below), a 50/50 draw, a Loonie table, and refreshments. The Loonie table is for horticulturally-related items of any sort, pots, plants, books, magazines etc., that you no longer want or need, that might be used and appreciated by someone else. Just leave the items on the Loonie table. Browse what is there, and if you see something you like, then it’s yours for a loonie.

Enter the Mini Show and have fun!

Mini Shows occur during regular Monthly Member Meetings and feature two classes in which you can exhibit: one is ‘design’ and the other is ‘display’. Bring your exhibits between 6.15 and 6.50 pm the evening of the show and pick them up at the end of the meeting. As we have no flower judge at our regular meetings our attending members will vote for their favourite arrangements. We’re hoping that will entice more members to enter the shows and gain experience.

Mini Show judging

OHA judging standards apply.
