Spring 2023 talks

Monday 24 April - Spring Fling and Plant Swop. No Charge!

This is a break from our tradition of holding this event on the last meeting of the spring in May or June. Only one member brought seedlings last year as most of us had planted out or given away our young plants by then. April, on the other hand, seems a more promising time so we are giving the change of date a whirl in 2023. Please bring your plant swops and a contribution to the Bring and Share Supper.

Monday 5th June – Picnic in the Bishops Gardens

The usual Monday evening meeting has been replaced by the idea of a lunchtime picnic. If the weather is forecast is bad, it can easily be moved to a different date. It is hoped that some members who have not managed to come in the evenings, will me able to attend. We’d love to see you! Stephanie will post more details nearer the time.

Monday 25th September – Melanie Oxley on Climate Change

This talk was cancelled in April 2022 due to Melanie’s ill health, so we are glad to welcome her now she is better.

Monday 30th October – AGM and Harvest Supper

Monday 27th November – Sarah Hughes. A talk on wildlife corridors and wildlife gardening.

Sarah, Strategic Wildlife Corridors Project Office for Chichester District Council, gave us a talk on Zoom during one of the lockdowns which those of us who logged in really enjoyed. Now is a second chance for those who missed it and for those who enjoyed the first one to hear it in person and updated!
