This group has 60 members from across the counties of Staffordshire and Worcestershire, as well as from even further afield. The members meet monthly on Saturdays for garden visits in summer (April to September inclusive) and for talks in winter. Talks are usually held in Wall, near Lichfield, or in Swindon, near Wombourne.
The group welcomes new members. To support this a website has been created with a changed identity (Staffs & Worcs Gardening Club), giving potential new members information about our group and its activities.
Talks & outings are held on Saturdays as listed below.
