  • Title: GardenOntario: Petawawa Horticultural Society
    Descriptive info: About the Petawawa Horticultural Society.. Member of the Ontario Horticultural Association (OHA) since 1997.. The Petawawa Horticultural Society (PHS) is organized under the authority of the Agricultural and Horticultural Societies Act (Bill 66 - 1986).. It is affiliated with the Ontario Horticultural Association (OHA) and is one of twenty-two societies which make up District 2.. Funding is granted by the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture and Food and is based on membership.. The PHS gratefully acknowledges this support.. The Petawawa Society is an organization of interested volunteers who are dedicated to the good of their community.. They meet once a month for approximately two hours and add to their own knowledge through guest speakers, society members, group discussions and workshops.. A question and answer forum, coffee break, "friendly competitions" and a door prize draw round out the evening.. Meetings are held the second Monday of each month (excluding July and August) at 7:00 p.. in the Fundraising Lounge (upstairs) at the Petawawa Civic Centre (.. map.. ).. Membership fees.. Membership fees (paid for the calendar year) are as follows:.. Single of Corporate Membership $10.. 00.. Family Membership $12.. 00.. Our Objectives.. Part IV, Section 36 of the Agricultural and Horticultural Organizations Act states:.. The objects of a Horticultural Society are to encourage interest and improvement in Horticulture:.. By holding meetings respecting the theory and practice of horticulture;.. By encouraging the planting of trees, shrubs and flowers on public and private grounds; By promoting balcony and community gardening and outdoor beautification;.. By arranging field trips, contests, competitions and exhibitions related to horticulture and awarding prizes;.. By distributing seeds, plants, bulbs, flowers, trees and shrubs;.. By promoting the protection of the environment;.. By promoting the circulation of horticultural information through any media;.. By encouraging youth in horticulture.. If you are interested in horticulture, the increasingly popular diversion - show up at one of our meetings, we welcome guests and can always use more help and ideas!.. For further information - or to volunteer - contact uscall 613-687-5435.. If you would be happy all your life, plant a garden.. - Chinese Proverb.. Community Gardens.. The Society maintains fifteen garden plots 30' x 30'.. However, half plots, 15' x 30'  ...   have shared the produce with family, friends and local seniors.. Beans, in particular, have done well and we've harvested bushels of them.. Do you find that hard to believe? Drop over and have a look! There is good natured rivalry amongst the gardeners but we do share our expertise thereby becoming more knowledgeable each new gardening season.. So, if you would like a plot - or if you know of anyone who might be interested - please let us know.. The plots are available on a first-come, first-served basis.. Give it a try, reserve one now.. Contact the Society and we'd be only too pleased to answer any queries.. Gordon Strathy, Coordinator.. Never plant any plant deeper than it was in the nursery.. Top roots should be covered with no more than 2" of soil plus 1 W' of mulch.. The desired level, under normal soil conditions, should always be 2" higher than the surrounding area since the plant and soil will settle.. Newly planted nursery stock (including items transplanted the previous fall) needs extra attention during the first growing season.. One warm spell does not make Spring! Don't uncover any plant on a sunny day (danger of sun-scald!) but rather, uncover on a cloudy day towards evening.. Trillium Competition.. Each year we sponsor a competition that is open to residents of the Town of Petawawa, who, through extra effort, have made the tront yard of their home, through the use of flowers, trees, shrubs, etc.. a source of pride, not only to themselves - but to their neighbourhood.. The gardens are rated on a scale of 1 to lOusing prescribed criteria.. Neither nominators nor nominees need be members of our Society.. They must, however, have carried out the work themselves.. (Commercially designed or installed landscaping is ineligible.. ) This award may be won only once by any individual.. If, after reading the following criteria, you know of a tront yard you feel is worthy of an award pick up a nomination form and mail it to the convener of the competition.. Presentations.. We meet at the Petawawa Civic Centre at 7:00 pm the 2nd Monday of each month, unless otherwise noted.. Last Updated: 2011-05-08..
