STell us about the Gardening section!
As a member of the gardening section you get to meet lots of other members of the Woolston club who also enjoy gardening.
Every month we meet and have a speaker who comes to talk to us about various aspects of gardening across a range of topics.
We hold regular competitions where you can submit your flowers or vegetables. If you enter competitions you earn points, and at the end of the year there are awards for the top three winning places!
We also regular hold sales of plants and vegetables and organise various outings through the year. The subscription to join the gardening section is $7 per year.
The gardening section is a great section with good members we would love to see you!
Are beginners welcome?
Anyone is welcome to join the gardening section.
When do you meet?
We meet every 3rd Wednesday of the month at 7pm to 8pm.
