The Society meets in the Brabourne & Smeeth Village Hall on the last Friday of each month at 7.15 for 7.30 pm; the Village Hall is on the corner of Lees Road and Manor Pound Lane in Brabourne Lees and is a wheelchair friendly venue with ample parking.
At most meetings there is a guest speaker covering subjects such as vegetables, flowers, bees, plants, wild flowers, gardens, etc. – look out for our posters around the village. If you want to know more about what, when, where and how to grow fruit, veg, flowers, shrubs and trees and how to beat the rabbits, pigeons, foxes, slugs and snails why not come along to our group for tea, coffee and a chat with like-minded fellow gardeners in a friendly and sociable atmosphere? Everyone is welcome no matter how green their fingers!
The Society arranges occasional day trips to some of the best gardens in the South East – in recent years we have visited RHS Wisley, Beth Chatto, Great Comp, Hyde Hall, Downderry Lavender Nursery and Wakehurst to name but a few. The Society is affiliated to the Royal Horticultural Society, giving us, amongst other benefits, access to personalised advice and concessions for entry to the gardens at Wisley.
Throughout the year we also hold seasonal shows, a very popular plant sale, the occasional quiz, a summer supper, wine and wander evenings and, of course, our renowned annual Christmas dinner.
