About Us

Regina Horticultural Society

The Regina Horticultural Society (RHS) is a charitable, not-for-profit membership organization founded in 1928. We promote horticulture education, gardening activity and community. Membership driven, the RHS provides a place where all “greening” enthusiasts from novice gardeners to experienced horticulturists, and purely-for-pleasure observers can pursue their horticultural interests.
