In line with Government advice, most groups and organisations in the city have had to take the unfortunate decision to suspend face to face and group work activities. Please telephone or email the contacts listed for the group or organisation if you are interested in their work to check what alternative arrangements might be available or to find out about alternative groups or services in your area.


Details
This is a group for anyone with a an interest in gardening or visiting gardens and exchanging ideas, and expertise with other members.

We suggest and arrange visits to open gardens throughout the spring and summer, including, usually, a coach trip in June to see some gardens which are open by arrangement only.

We alert members to gardening events and we help gardeners to swap and share plants, seeds and equipment by advertising these to other members who are part of the Grange Garden Exchange Group. In October/November in particular, we meet to take stock and then send out a list of plants and seeds that are surplus to requirements and that members are willing to donate to other members of the group.

In May we run a plant stall at the Grange Fair. The majority of plants are donated by gardeners in the Grange and bought by them too, making a great contribution to the Fair and on to local good causes.

Some members are involved in volunteering to look after Newington Library garden and other plant around our street trees to keep these spaces looking tidy and colourful.

If you want to join this group please get in touch with Edythe Murie, gardens@grangeassociation.com.
