Our gardening club used to have just short of 140 members, but this is now down to the high 80's1
The problem is that there is not many young ones, mainly elderly ladies and unfortunately the elderly pass on and are not replaced!
I/we bring free seeds such as from Garden News, also garden mags etc which are free to take or a small donation is acceptable, also we have a plant sale in May which members provide free plants which are sold for club funds!
Members can also bring plants for sale, a 10% fee is charged on any sales which also goes to the club, these are offered at the end of the meeting and if any male happens to get in the way of the "ladies"trying to be first, tough luck, they make the St Trinians lot look like proper young ladies!
