We welcome any members who are interested in contributing their skills and talents for the benefit of the club.

As a member of our club, you will have access to a range of activities and events throughout the year, including informative talks and workshops, garden visits, plant sales, social get-togethers, and our popular annual Spring and Autumn shows. You will also have the opportunity to socialize with other gardeners and learn from their expertise.

We typically meet once a month, usually on the 4th Wednesday of the month at 7.30pm at Preston Village Hall, Mill Lane, Preston, Canterbury, CT3. We also hold special events and activities throughout the year, including garden visits, plant sales, and our annual flora competitions.

Do I need to have a garden to join the club?

No, you do not need to have a garden to join the club. Many of our members are apartment-dwellers or do not have their own gardens or allotments, but they still enjoy learning about and appreciating horticulture.
