Welcome to the Guilford Horticultural Society
Sadly, one of the many changes post-Covid is the dissolution of the Guilford Horticulture Society. Based on the majority of your responses to this change, the Guilford Horticulture Society, which started in 1983 as a service to all of Guilford County garden enthusiasts, is transitioning remaining funds to Paul J. Ciener Botanical Garden in Kernersville, NC. These funds are restricted to producing an annual symposium and we hope you will join us at that future event. Please consider joining the Paul J. Ciener Garden as a member or volunteer to stay informed on the symposium and many other great garden speakers and events.

I attended the excellent and informative annual Horticulture Symposium (2018) where I learned so much about native plants from real experts! The beautiful visual presentations were accompanied by helpful printed materials so I could really pay attention to the speakers as I didn’t need to write a lot down. It was a great use of a March Saturday and I learned many tips about gardening in North Carolina
What great people and what wonderful gardens! The monthly meetings are a source of great information for making gardening easier and my yard more beautiful!
Members of this group are among the best gardeners in Greensboro. I have learned so much from them and have so many unique and wonderful plants found at their biennial plant swaps. Always great speakers at the monthly meetings and the annual symposium. Whether you are a novice or seasoned gardener in the Triad, there is no better organization to join
If you love gardening, there’s no better place to learn about what works best in the Piedmont Triad, knowledge which will save you $ and frustration. It’s also a great place to develop friendships with people who share common interests.
Membership costs $25 for an individual, $35 household family. Members also get discounts on our annual symposium. Student membership is available for $8.
Meetings are held at the Greensboro Science Center, 4301 Lawndale Drive, Greensboro, NC, at 7:15 pm on the third Monday of the month, starting in September. There is no meeting in December, and the January meeting is on an alternate Monday to accommodate the Martin Luther King holiday.
We also hold special events and programs at other locations. Check out our Programs page for details.
We welcome you to attend a meeting or two for free before joining.
