Both Beaverton and Cannington have active Horticultural Societies that dutifully plant and maintain the municipal flowerbeds and main street planters. The time and effort put forth by these Societies to beautify Brock is greatly appreciated and enjoyed by many.
Beaverton Horticultural Society
The Beaverton Horticultural Society was started in 1922 with the first flower show being held on September 22, 1922 in the Town Hall.
In most cases the General Meetings are held the 4th Thursday of the month. Not only do the meetings highlight informative and entertaining speakers, the BHS also hosts workshops and offers advice clinics for gardeners with an opportunity for guests to enjoy a social time with homemade goodies. Guests and Members welcome at all our events. Please use the contact information below for more details.
