Rowen Gardening Club was founded in 2000 as a Rowen WI millennium project. Activities include:

  • Evening meetings at Rowen Memorial Hall, with a wide variety of talks.
  • Plant swaps at meetings.
  • Visits to members’ gardens, always with a tea party.
  • Harvest Supper
  • Visits to gardens further afield.
  • New Year lunch.
  • Our meetings and visits are very sociable, and they include plenty of home-made cake.
  • We welcome suggestions for speakers and garden visits.
  • New members are welcome.
  • You do not need to have a 4-acre garden, or even live in Rowen.
  • We have members from as far afield as Anglesey.
  • Members can get a discount at some local garden centres, including 10% at Snowdonia Nurseries, Glan Conwy.   Bodnant Plant Centre gives a 10% discount on plants to Bodnant Welsh Food Centre loyalty card holders.
