Mansfield U3A Gardening group arranges a varied programme designed to help members learn together in a friendly, informal manner. The annual programme extends from March until December and includes topical talks by horticultural specialists. The subject matter each month is wide and varied and includes topics to suit all gardening tastes. The programme also includes a visit to an outstanding garden at group discount rates.
There is a small charge for the meetings; however refreshments are included.
We meet on the first Tuesday in the month, from March until December. Our programme offers variety and, we hope, some fun. Please contact me, if you require more information, using the bird link above or phone 01623 635607 and check the Events page.
