Bishops Waltham Gardening Club is a vibrant part of the rich fabric of societies and clubs that contribute to the social cohesion of the town. It has about 300 members who share a whole range of interests and expertise largely, as you’d expect, to do with gardens and gardening. The Gardening Club cares for a thriving site of some 200 allotments, including raised beds for less able-bodied gardeners and mini plots for children. It stages an annual show, organises interesting talks, outings and lively social events, as well as running profitable plant sales to raise money for the Club’s activities. We are a very friendly club and we always look forward to welcoming new people. You most certainly do not have to be an experienced gardener to belong!
