The Medicine Hat and District Horticultural Association is dedicated to the promotion of all horticultural interest in and around the city of Medicine Hat, and to the education of the people of the area by featuring qualified speakers on a wide range of horticultural topics.
The Medicine Hat & District Horticultural Society was first established in 1949 when a Constitution and By-laws were adopted. The Society flourished until the mid 1970’s when it ceased to exist. In October, 1980, an application was made to the societies’ commission to establish the current Medicine Hat & District Horticultural Society. A new Constitution and By-laws were adopted on October 5, 1981.

Lots of perennials will be offered for sale. Great selection and prices. These plants come from the gardens of our members and are tried, tested and true for the growing conditions of Medicine Hat.
This much anticipated self-guided tour highlights beautiful, lovingly-tended gardens in our city. This is our big fundraiser for the year and it allows us to bring in speakers for our members.
