Arborfield Gardening Association

 

The Arborfield Garden Association (AGA) generally meet on the fourth Thursday of each month, between 7:30 & 9:30 pm

We are a friendly bunch, who obviously enjoy gardening …. or admiring them!!  During the summer months, we visit local gardens, sometimes even enjoying a pleasant glass of wine & home-made goodies.  We also visit gardens further afield, such as Waterperry,Wisley & Hyde Hall.  You can read our Annual Report for 2017/18 here.

We also have the occasional seasonal Show & Plant Sale and run some mini-competitions and practical sessions, such as floral crackers, macrame hanging plant pot holders, fruit and vegetable carving, and exercise for gardeners!  Our programme for the coming 12 months is set out below.  Do come along and enjoy the events with us.  Contact details at the foot of the programme.
