Oakley Gardening Club
The Oakley Gardening Club meets on the first Monday of the month (except January and July) between 19.30 and 21.30 in the Main Hall at St Leonards Centre
Membership costs just £15 per annum.
We are a group of gardeners - some more expert than others - who enjoy learning more though talks and slides and in sharing information about all things gardening.
In addition to our monthly meetings we have a visit to a local garden instead of a meeting in July - in 2018 we were welcomed to Old Camps between Kingsclere and Newbury which was, a couple of months later, featured on the BBC Gardener's World programme.
As we are affiliated to the Royal Horticultural Society we are entitled to one free party visit a year to one of their lovely gardens. In May 2022 we visited RHS Wisley having previously visited in September.
Members also join with other organisations in the village for other outings - Petworth House and West Dean Gardens in May 2018 and in 2019 we visited Montacute House and Barrington Court in Somerset. After the enforced break, we plan to visit the Bishop's Palace and Gardens at Wells in 2022
In addition, we stage two main fund-raising events during the year:
- Early Summer Plant Sale: Held at a member's garden, where the whole village is invited to come along to buy plants grown and nurtured by members
- A stall at the Front Garden Stalls event
- A stall at the Oakley Village Show:
New members are always welcome - just come along to any meeting. You do not require any expert knowledge - an interest in gardening is all that is needed.
