Meeting Calendar

Our meetings are held on the second Thursday of each month from September to June at 7:30 p.m. They usually take place at Ongwanada Resource Centre.

The entrance to Ongwanada is on Portsmouth Ave, just south of Johnson St. It is immediately past the Health Unit on the left when going south. Park at the end of the driveway. The building is forward from the end of the drive. [There is more parking to the left.]

There are bus stops on Portsmouth near Ongwanada for evening route E12.

Visitors and prospective members are always welcome. There is no charge for members of the Kingston Horticultural Society or other garden club. For others, entry is $3.00. KHS and garden club members should please show their membership card when coming to meetings.
