Spring 2020 Programme…
Thursday February 20th 7.30 pm, Rowen Memorial Hall
Fiona Braithwaite, National Trust gardener at Bodnant ‘New Projects at Bodnant’. We have had a few talks from Fiona now – she is a popular and lively speaker.
Thursday March 19th 7.30 pm, Rowen Memorial Hall
Club member Mark Sheridan is giving a talk entitled ‘A haven for wildlife’ – Mark’s presentation takes us on his journey to discover the inhabitants of a garden managed for wildlife. Mark and Jill describe how they’ve set about observing and recording wildlife, and show us some of the more interesting creatures they’ve seen.
Thursday April 16th 7.30 pm, Rowen Memorial Hall
We are having the first of our planned Members evenings, with a discussion led by a few interested people on the topic of fruit and vegetables in our gardens. This is not just about growing, but also about cooking, freezing, storing our produce. Tips and recipes are welcomed and we’re planning to write these up and distribute them, so have a think about soups, chutneys, jams, baking, any way you use your produce – and bring your ideas.
Looking ahead…May 2020
Sue Morgan is planning to open her garden at Sychnant to the club.
Refreshments, lots of interest and possibly plant and other sales. Date to be announced.
