Plants and Gardens
During the Covid 19 crisis we are meeting online in our Arun West U3A Plants and Gardens Group.
Please click the link on the right.
You may join this group as long as you are a member of Arun West U3A or Littlehampton U3A.
What do we do?
We meet once a month from February to October for a visit to a garden - usually NGS and usually a private visit just for us.
The owners are usually on hand to show us around and chat with us. There is always lovely home made cake!
We try to meet during the winter to look at photographs of our own gardens and also those we visited. Cake is also involved plus plants and seed swapping.
