Ash and District Horticultural and Cottage Gardeners' Society

We are a friendly gardening society in East Kent with over 100 members from across the parish of Ash and the neighbouring areas of Sandwich, Woodnesborough, Wingham & further afield. Our members range from farmers, professional horticulturists, allotment holders and flower arrangers to active gardeners and not-so-active gardeners who enjoy seeing a colourful display outside their windows and visiting other people's gardens.
We actively encourage children to participate in the society and have links with local schools.

Our meetings are held in Ash Village Hall, Queen's Road, Ash, Nr. Canterbury. CT3 2BG on the 4th Thursday of the month at 7.30pm.

Our Activities

We are a very active society. At our monthly meetings we have a speaker followed by free tea/coffee and posh biscuits. Plants and garden related goods are for sale at reasonable prices. We have a fantastic monthly raffle.
Throughout the year we have "garden gossips" when we gather to appreciate and enjoy members gardens with tea and cake.

An annual holiday is organised during which we visit gardens further afield.
Various day trips to private and well known gardens are planned through the year with more tea and cake!. See Events Page »
