‘Gardening Challenges’ at Marazion Community Centre

If, in the hustle and bustle of Christmas, you missed the deadline to book your place on our ‘Gardening Challenges’ day, don’t worry! It’s proving to be a popular event, but space is still available. 

The day will be held on Saturday 20th January  from 10:30am until 3:30pm at Marazion Community Centre. 

Lottie Allen, Head Gardener at St Michael’s Mount, will speak to us about the Mount’s  beautiful gardens and the seemingly impossible task of  gardening in those conditions. This should be particularly helpful for those of us who try to garden near the sea! A further delight will be a talk from Ian Wright MCIHort, Consultancy Manager (Garden Specialist), National Trust, South West Region, on “Plant Conservation: Can We Meet the Challenge?”.

You are welcome to bring along some samples from your own garden and learn how to present them should you wish to enter your local show. Members of the committee from the West Cornwall Show will be there to explain and assist as you set up your entry.

A light lunch of soup, a roll and a piece of cake will be available to buy on the day.

Friends and family are also welcome. Those of you who have been there before will know there’s ample parking available at Marazion Community Centre, so why not fill up a car!?

If you’d like to book a space, please contact the office Monday through Thursday on (01872) 272843.

    Hi, do we have to pre- book the soup and roll for the Gardening Chalkenge Day?
    Thanks.

      You do need to specify whether or not you’d like lunch (on the booking form) but there’s no need to pay until the day.
