Quote of the Month

There can be no other occupation like gardening in which, if you were to creep up behind someone at their work, you would find them smiling.

Garden Club visit to The Cactus Gardens at Casarabonela 9 September


By popular demand, our September visit will be to The Cactus Gardens at Casarabonela on Tuesday 9 September

The club last visited these gardens over two years ago. Since then the gardens have been taken over by Mariano Carrasco and Tania Munoz Doblas and now have the second largest collection of cacti in Europe.

We will leave Competa by coach at 09.00am from outside the Tourist Office and make one stop at Archez corner on the Sayalonga road.  Journey time to Casarabonela is approximately one and half hour.  

Following a tour of the cacti gardens, we will enjoy a private buffet lunch with a choice of six tapas together with a choice of either soft drink, small beer or wine or coffee for 8 euros.

After lunch there will be time to visit the gift shop and library and then we will have a brief guided tour of a village private garden where we will see some of the cactus on display.

The club will pay for the coach transportation and entrance fees to the two gardens, members are responsible for paying on the day for the buffet lunch, 8 euros.

Please let me know as soon as possible if you are able to join us by email at cindyjones19@hotmail.com  
  • if you are a pensioner 
  • your mobile phone number 
  • joining point of either Competa or Archez corner.
Many thanks and I look forward to seeing you on 9th September.
