Apart from possible monthly organised trips, we have thought about potential plant/seed swaps and/or garden books/magazine swaps alongside having speakers.
Any ideas for speakers or other meetings and places to visit will be very welcome.
Our first organised venture out is to Lotherton Hall on Tuesday 17th July and is £15 pounds per person including coach and entrance fee!
