  • Description:

    Established in the early 80s the Garden Group is one of the longest running groups in the U3AC. Garden enthusiasts meet to enjoy talks by individual gardening experts and by members of the group, with occasional sessions devoted to group discussions on topics of special interest. In the summer term we arrange visits to local (usually members') gardens and a coach trip to gardens and nurseries further afield. We welcome members who are enthusiastic about gardens and plants, but no experience necessary. The Autumn term will be held by Zoom. Dates: 12 & 26 Oct, 9 & 23 Nov, 7 Dec; 25 Jan, 8 & 22 Feb, 8 & 22 Mar. N.B. There will be an additional charge of £10 per head towards speaker expenses payable at the first meeting either by BACS, cash or cheque payable to Margaret Nimmo-Smith.
