​The Ottawa Valley Rock Garden & Horticultural Society (OVRGHS).
We are affiliated with both the North American Rock Garden Society (NARGS) and the Ontario Horticultural Association (OHA).


Our Society was formed in November 1992. Although the faces have changed somewhat since then, the objectives of the Society have remained the same: to promote and support "rock gardening" on a non-profit basis.

Over the years, we have built upon the solid foundation of the original group. We offer our members:

  • monthly meetings from September through May featuring local, national and international speakers,

  • periodic newsletters per year

  • an annual seed exchange,

  • spring plant sales each year,

  • garden tours and field trips,

  • workshops and demonstrations,

New members are always welcome.
