Russell and District Horticultural Society

The Russell and District Horticultural Society is dedicated to engaging and educating gardeners of all ages. We encourage the improvement and beautification of our community through gardening, recycling, and supporting local businesses. Our goal is to enhance our community by making it even more beautiful while protecting the environment.

Just some of our amazing past presidents. Louise Houle, Pegi Holtz, John Funston, Carole Van Die, Grace Stapper, Marcel Beauchamp and Lindley McPhail.

Each year in March, we hold March it on Out where we encourage everyone to reuse items.

In 2009, RDHS spearheaded the build of a dry stone bridge in MacDougall Park. With help from the Russell Lions Club, Cindy and Scott Cluett, and enthusiastic volunteers, we all continue to enjoy this beautiful bridge.

Each year we hold a large flower show at our June meeting and throughout the year, we also hold mini flower shows.
