Welcome to our Gardening Club Rhydlewis and District Gardening Club has been around since the time of Adam and Eve. In fact, it is believed that one of our members planted and tended the very apple tree that gave rise to the pair being expelled from the garden!!

Whether this urban myth is true or not, the club is here to encourage, improve and extend the members' knowledge of all branches of horticulture. It is open to everyone and new members are all always welcome to come along.

Our activities during the year include a varied programme of talks and social events, summer garden visits, a plant sale, social gatherings/bbq and an annual open show in August.

Successful and Well-Attended AGM for the Rhydlewis Gardening Club

Tuesday February 24th saw more than thirty people turning up for the AGM. 

Wine and delicacies were served, and Marianne ran a quiz on bees, which linked in well with Gerald Cooper, from New Quay Honey Farm, who gave a talk on bees last year. Carrie Noakes won the prize for her bee knowledge. As member Rita Hyde said "I thought the AGM went well last night, with a good turn out...I enjoyed the bee quiz, even though I had forgotten most of the answers. The food seemed to go down well and it was nice to see everyone standing around chatting."

Quite a lot of business was done, and you can read the entire minutes by going to the link; http://rhydlewisgardeningclub.blogspot.co.uk/p/annual-general-meeting-2013.html

Please note the new membership fee, and please, if you weren't at the meeting, contact Marianne to pay your subs as soon as possible.

The new programme was handed out, but you can download it by going to http://rhydlewisgardeningclub.blogspot.co.uk/p/programme-of-events.html
make a cake from your courgettes

A great idea from Liz Blackler, our new Show Secretary, was brought into action. She will collate any recipies you have that you use to cope with gluts of produce at harvest time. Preserves, cakes, dishes – just sort them out and give them to Liz. She will have them available at meetings, especially around harvest time, to share.

Don't forget the Spring Show is the next event, get ready with your six tulips, and contact Liz Blackler, if you don't already have your show schedule. liz_blackler@hotmail.com

Just one more thing; don't forget that we are constricted to a two hour slot in the village hall, and we ask you to arrive promptly for meetings; the hall will be open from 7pm to facilitate a prompt start at 7.30pm
