If you've considered joining the SHS but want to know more about what's in it for you, you've come to the right place! For the majority of members, the $15 annual membership pays for itself and then some via discounts from our community business partners.
The majority of business partners offer discounts that are approximately equal to 10% off your purchase, so if you typically spend $150 or more on garden supplies at the participating businesses in a year, your membership easily pays for itself. The membership also provides access to gardening workshops and volunteer opportunities that get you into events like Gardenscape for free.

Arbour Crest Tree Services - 10% discount on removal or pruning of trees and shrubs
