Website Upgrade to Responsive Design

Following a brief "Under Construction" phase, www.RichmondHillGardenSociety.org

has been re-launched with a fresh, modern, look and a responsive, mobile-aware design.

For the thousands of gardening-enthusiasts who view our website on smart phones,  this is sure to be a welcome change.

Our horticultural society is one of the first in Ontario to be represented on the world wide web, with an online presence going back more than twenty years.  In 2014, as a project in honour of the society's 100th anniversary, and leveraging the Wild Apricot Membership Management System, we introduced secure, self-service features such as online Membership initiation, renewal, dues payment and profile management; online purchase of tickets for public Events such as our Open Gates Garden Tour, and private events such as our Gala Holiday Celebration.  In 2020 we transitioned to online, virtual events, and welcomed the public to register through our site. And when we couldn't hold a grand Plant Sale at a public venue in 2021, we instead sold the plants our members tended in a local greenhouse through the Online Store feature of our site.

More than 40% of our record-setting traffic in 2021 was from smart phones. We are excited to support our members and the public by making our site much easier to use on mobile devices in 2022!
