If you missed the deadline to apply to attend our ‘Gardening Challenges’ event at Marazion Community Centre next month, you may not be too late!
The event will be held on Saturday 20th January from 10:30am until 3:30pm and will include a series of fascinating talks for the curious gardeners among us.
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.
We know that many WIs don’t meet in December and sometimes paperwork slips through the cracks. So if you’re still interested in attending but missed out on the deadline, just ring the office Monday-Thursday on (01872) 272843 to see if there are any last-minute spaces available.
