Charing Gardeners' Society

Spring update 2024

Our event calendar for 2024 is complete and all events and dates can be found here on the website. We have had a great start to the year with full houses at our talks and we look forward to the showing season too. 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.


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.



We also run three main shows a year for Spring, Summer and Autumn and take part in the annual Charing fete.



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.
