BETTER GARDENING WITH
Charing Gardeners' Society
January update 2024
Our event calendar for 2024 is complete and the website here will be updated shortly. We have a number of very interesting and informative talks planned throughout the year with excellent speakers, three shows, three wine and wander events in three lovely gardens, and a visit planned to a local garden this spring and a coach trip to The Sussex Prairie Garden and Borde Hill this summer. We continue to maintain the lovely Sundial Garden in the heart of the village and have a plant sale organised for the beginning of May. We welcomed a good number of new members last year which is very encouraging for the future of the society. New members are always welcome. The 2024 calendar of events will be updated shortly as will other pages on the website. Our first talk is on 22nd January, Church Barn, Charing, 2pm.
The 2024 Annual will be available at the first talk. You can view an online copy here. 2024 Annual
We run around eight talks across the year. Some of the winter talks are in the daytime for easier attendance when nights are dark and cold. From spring talks take place in the Church Barn on a Wednesday evening and sometimes in the afternoons during the cold weather.
We visit a mix of gardens from professional and RHS gardens to our local "Wine and Wanders" at member gardens around the village.
Charing Gardeners' Society was formed over 125 years ago. During the early years of our society we had just one main event run in a marquee at the Summer Fete.
We are now a thriving society of over 150+ members with friendly people of all levels of abilities and we welcome new members at any time of year at any of our events. We are really pleased to report that there has been a great uptake in membership in recent years and we are especially keen to encourage more children and families to take up gardening and participate in our programme of events.
You can also find out what we are going by clicking on the Facebook or YouTube icons at the bottom of this page.
Charing Gardeners mainly uses two venues in Charing: Church Barn for talks and The Parish Hall for our shows. See the map for locations.
