Our Meetings

Meetings are usually on the third Friday of the month, January - March, May & June and September - November. Our Annual Plant Sale is held in St Briavels in late April.

We meet alternately in Brockweir and St Briavels. We take a break from regular meetings during the summer months. We hold our AGM in November.

Everyone is always welcome to our meetings (visitors £5.)

SUPPORTING WILDLIFE IN OUR AREA

We have supported the welfare of our local bees with annual grants which encouraged new people to take up beekeeping, from 2009 to 2019. We are launching a new project this year - originally planned for 2020, but postponed because of Covid restrictions


TREES FOR A GREENER WORLD

With the support of The Woodland Trust, we want to help local people to plant native trees.


Trees are one of the best ways to fight a changing climate, build a greener future, create havens for wildlife and contribute to increasing species diversity.


The idea of the project is to encourage people who want to plant trees, to plant them in the right places and for the right reasons: for example, creating or extending a hedgerow, replacing diseased trees or attracting more wildlife to their garden.
