Otley & District Gardening Club
The Otley & District Gardening Club meets at Otley Village Hall once a month on the first Monday evening at 7:30 pm. We invite a different gardening expert each month to tell us about a gardening or nature topic and to answer our questions, aiming for a lively and interactive evening with time for refreshments and a chat.
We are a friendly group of mostly non-expert gardening amateurs or just interested novices, and we're always happy to welcome visitors and new members from far and wide. Our season starts in September with monthly meetings up to Christmas, and after a winter break we recommence in March .
As well as our meetings we aim to hold a Spring Open Plant sale, to make a Spring Club visit to a local gardening venue, and in summer we venture further afield on our annual outing. These events are also open to members' partners and/or guests.
Annual Membership of our club is £10, and the entrance to our monthly meetings is £1.50 (non-members £4.00) which includes refreshments.
To find out more please contact Alan Trevelyan on 01473 890563 (firstname.lastname@example.org), or just come along to a monthly meeting
