Welcome to Worplesdon Garden Club

Worplesdon Garden Club is a friendly and enthusiastic club which meets every second Tuesday of the month from 8-10pm at Emmanuel Parish Centre, Stoughton, Guildford, GU2 9SJ.  Doors open from 7.45pm and you can find a map here.

We have a full schedule of speakers  throughout the year, educating and entertaining us on a diverse mix of Horticultural and Natural History topics.  Talks and slide shows are interspersed with refreshments and the evening provides plenty of opportunities to socialise and browse the plants on the plant stall and take part in the raffle for some fantastic garden-related prizes.

The Club also has a range of social events throughout the year including Garden Visits, Lunches, Barbecues, and Horticultural Shows.

Visitors and new members are always guaranteed a warm welcome.  Membership is only £15 for the year from January (£8 from July). Please Contact Us if you would like any more information on our meetings or activities or to come along as a visitor (£3).

Club Meetings

Our next Club Meeting on Tuesday 9th July from 8pm at Emmanuel Parish Centre will look at one of the amazing birds that are so iconic on our rivers and wetlands - the Mute Swan, with a talk by Cindy Smulders on the work of 'Swan Lifeline' - the oldest charity devoted to the care of sick and injured swans in our area.

We will hear about the amazing work Swan Lifeline do to help over 700 swans each year, and perhaps, given our meeting's proximity to the third week of July, will hear about the ancient tradition of Swan Upping that takes place on the Thames at this time.

Our June meeting saw Eddie Bailey give us a fascinating insight into the diverse ecology that inhabits our soils and how the health and food web these soil flora and fauna produce is so essential to the overall health of the soil and the productivity it provides higher plants that grow in it, and ultimately how this affects our own health and well-being too.

The early Summer photographs from our Members' gardens for last month can be enjoyed on the June Photographs page.

See the 2024 Club Programme, the Potting Shed pages, or the Newsletter for more information on Club meetings and activities.
