Gardening Clubs – Gardening Groups and Societies
Gardening Clubs – Gardening Groups and Societies in Australia. Gardening Clubs provide an excellent source of support and knowledge for both the experienced and begriming gardener. Gardening clubs tend to focus on either regional or local garden conditions or on specific areas of gardening.
Clubs may specialise in one particular species or they may look at a wider group of related plants. Rose, Orchid and Bonsai clubs or societies tend to have a specific focus, Alpine and Rock Garden Societies or Clubs concentrate on a range of plants. Gardening Clubs offer a range of activities including gardening classes, educational speakers, garden shows and competitions. We provide a free service to gardening clubs and societies in Australia with links to some of the major international gardening clubs and societies.
Gardeners clubs are about a lot more than growing plants, a great way to meet like minded people and grow your social network, an excellent way to give back to the community through local re vegetation programs as well as an excellent way to learn about gardening, landscape ideas and international gardening events.
