Comox Valley Horticultural Society looking to fill executive positions

The Comox Valley Horticultural Society will have 40 years of history under its belt in 2018.

During this time we have been active in the community helping organizations with gardening projects and other needs.

Since its establishment in 2008, our Gardens in Bloom event has generated funds that were used to help children, adults and seniors in the Comox Valley.

In the last 10 years, we have distributed more than $32,000 in funding to local organizations and charities.

We are seeking a few key people to help run our society.

We need a president to lead the way and a treasurer to balance the books, both of which may be shared positions, in order to carry on as a thriving and giving community organization.

Our board has an excellent group of seasoned directors. Our spring plant sale is a big hit and an easy way to snap up some garden treasures at bargain prices.

Our monthly meetings have featured many exceptional speakers who have entertained and educated, and motivated us to enrich our lives and our surroundings.

If you have a passion for the outdoors in our beautiful Comox Valley, please consider getting involved with our group. We have lots to offer and want to keep growing!

Intrigued? Please contact president@comoxvalleyhortsociety.ca
