2022 Spring Membership Drive

Individuals who have never been Society members and sign up for a membership between April 22 and June 2, will be entered to win one of three $50 gift cards. The gift cards are for Anything Grows Garden Centre in Cochrane, Golden Acre Home and Garden in north Calgary, and greengate Garden Centres in south Calgary. One card per garden centre. An individual can only win once. The sooner someone signs up for a membership, the better their chances of winning. All eligible entrants during the period (April 20 to June 2) will have their name in the three draws. See Spring Membership Drive under What’s Happening for more information.

Benefits to Members

Gardening resources, members-only events and shopping discounts will easily offset the cost of membership with the Calgary Horticultural Society! 

Bring a Friend

Bring a friend at member pricing to any workshop, class, or event. Members can register a non-member companion and pay member pricing (savings of at least 10% from non-member pricing) or bring a non-member guest to free member events, such as Open Gardens.


Calgary Gardening e-Magazine and Article Index

Receive eight informative magazines per year with how-to articles, plant profiles, and much more. Use the A-Z Index to find articles in past issues and click links to read articles.

Gardeners’ Online Discussion Forum

Connect with other members and share gardening advice and experiences.

Searchable Plant Database

Access descriptions of over 100 perennials, trees, and shrubs that grow well in the Calgary area.

Demonstration and Teaching Garden

Visit our garden to see what grows well in this climate, or join us for hands-on learning. (Note: because the Society has moved to Richmond Green, the garden is in redevelopment.)


We have a great selection of books, curated for our growing environment, for you to borrow or to browse at the Society office.

Learning Opportunities

Our year-round schedule includes hands-on workshops, instructional programs, guest speakers, and informal talks; most are free or discounted for members.


Spring and Fall Plant Shares

Share your excess plants, seeds, and bulbs and exchange for new treasures.

Two Signature Events

To launch the gardening season, the Society hosts a two-day event packed with expert guest speakers, demonstrations, and vendor displays.

To celebrate harvest and garlic, the Society hosts an event with knowledgeable speakers and a marketplace.

Members enjoy discounted tickets at both events.

Open Gardens

Members generously open their gardens for other members to see what grows well in Calgary and to get ideas for their own yards.

Shopping Discounts

Don’t go shopping without your membership card! We have more than 50 businesses offering discounts up to 15% to Society members.

Rewarding Volunteer Opportunities

Engage in activities with a community of fellow gardeners and reap the rewards.
