Horticultural Society


The Michigan State Horticultural Society (MSHS) is an educational organization with a mission "to encourage among the people a greater love for choice fruit products, to awaken a larger interest in Michigan's horticultural possibilities, and to offer practical suggestions along modern cultural and marketing methods". It was organized in 1870.

The Society has 1,250 members who are actively engaged in horticultural pursuits.

The Society co-hosts  the Great Lakes Fruit, Vegetable and Farm Market Expo (http://www.glexpo.com/) along with the Michigan Vegetable Council each December. The Expo includes exceptional educational programs and a four-hall trade show. The educational program encourages improved methods in the production, harvest, handling, storage, marketing and utilization of fruit and vegetable crops, as well as a full farm marketers program. The convention draws speakers noted as premier in their area of expertise from throughout Michigan and the world. The Trade Show is one the largest, if not the largest, horticultural show in the US. Participants are generally fruit and vegetable  growers, farm marketers and industry people from the Midwestern U.S. and Canada.

The Michigan State Horticultural Society also supports the Michigan State University Extension regional educational meetings. 

The Michigan State Horticultural Society supports the Michigan fruit industry, which contributes significantly to the health, well being and enjoyment of life for Michigan citizens and people throughout the world.
