If you enjoy gardening, or would like to learn more, make this the year that you get going! Growing your own flowers, fruits and vegetables is very satisfying. It is also pleasurable and can save you money! The Gardening Club can help you take that first step and we are a very friendly group of all ages, so if you just want to come along and see what it’s all about, we would love to welcome you, whether you are a complete beginner or are an experienced gardener. Membership costs only £10 per year and includes free admission to all our interesting talks, held on the second Friday of the month in the Kilmington Village Hall. For information on how to join, please see the ‘Who we are’ page.
