The club was founded in 2008 by a group of 3 friends who were keen experienced gardeners who recognized there was a need for people with similar interests to share their knowledge in gardening. As membership has grown the Club has organized garden tours and invited speakers on relevant subjects.
The club normally meets on the second Tuesday of each month throughout the year at 11am.
New members are always welcome.
