During the Winter, we have Meetings, which take the form of a series of lectures held on alternate Wednesday evenings. Meetings start at 7.45 pm with refreshments served prior to the meeting.
Secondly we have Visits to gardens and nurseries, which are held principally in summer months. Two plant sales are held each year and a newsletter is issued three times per annum.
We offer voluntary horticultural help to local charitable organisations, we do not undertake commercial or voluntary gardening work for commercial organisations or private individuals.
Reading Gardeners is a Registered Charity (no. 1034695). Our stated objective is “The Promotion and Advancement of the Science and Practice of Horticulture”. The Association is affiliated to the Royal Horticultural Society. We also financially support ‘Perennial’ (the former “Gardeners’ Royal Benevolent Society”).
Payment of subscriptions is due from 1st January at £15 per single member and £25 per couple. Guests are welcome at a charge of £3 at each meeting. If a guest has paid and then becomes a member at the same meeting, that evening's payment is deductible.
There is plenty of parking in the school grounds.
