Looking back at 2015 ...

The French River Horticultural Society had a successful year. We were able to fund four different community beautification projects. These included the building of raised gardens and the planting of perennials and shrubs. As well, four families were awarded ‘Curb Appeal Awards” in recognition of the time and effort they put into their front yard gardens. Our members regularly volunteer to plant and maintain gardens throughout the community. A monthly newsletter is distributed to educate and to inform members. We attended many local functions to promote our society and to entice new members.
