Letter from the Executive Director

Welcome to the Westonka Horticultural Society. We hope you will take a few minutes to browse our site.The Westonka Horticultural Society was developed by a group of local residents with horticulture experience who saw the need to protect the natural beauty of our community through responsible gardening and landscaping.

The Westonka area encompasses many communities that rest upon the shores of Lake Minnetonka, one of the grander natural resources in the state of Minnesota. We are surrounded with woodlands, wetlands and prairies. Each of us is responsible for a small piece of this greater environment. It is through our natural environment that the Westonka Horticultural Society becomes a viable educational organization.

One of the goals of the Westonka Horticultural Society is to provide educational tools for our community in sustainable gardening, landscaping and environmental needs. As our world continues to change through various impacts on the environment, we will strive to care for our larger landscape and encourage community members to become stewards of the earth. We will also work through community outreach to identify other areas of need in gardening and landscape efforts.

Funds raised through the Westonka Horticultural Society will bring programs to aid awareness within the community and offer scholarships to those who wish to advance their education in horticulture, agriculture and the environmental studies.

Thank you for visiting our site. Please stop back and check our events page for upcoming programs.

Regards in Gardening,

Barbara Voorhees Blaha
Executive Director
