What we do

Our group comprises members with an interest in plants, gardens and gardening.

We meet at Castle Street Community Centre for some of the winter months, where we invite speakers, show DVDs related to Gardening and the History of Gardening , or some members will take part in presentations on a chosen theme.
In the warmer months we visit gardens of interest or other members’ gardens.
Our learning, in addition, comes from our own members’ knowledge as we discuss topics of interest, swap plants, seeds and produce.
