Temple Sowerby Gardening Club

Join circulation list to be informed of meetings and garden visits in summer and autumn 2021

This is a relatively NEW group meeting in the Victory Hall, if we are not out visiting gardens. We all have a common interest in gardens, the environment and growing flowers and/or vegetables. We have guest speakers, visits to local open gardens, as well as our own gardens. Meetings will usually be on the first Tuesday of the month, but join the email list as dates may alter.

In 2019 and early 2020 we have enjoyed garden visits and talks as an introduction to Temple Sowerby Gardening Club. We will recommence with some summer garden visits in June 2021.
