Crickhowell Garden Society

Crickhowell Garden Society (CGS) was formed in Feb 2020 when the local Horticultural Society and the Open Gardens Association were combined. Our primary focus is to organise an annual Flower, Veg and Produce Show and Open Gardens event which will raise funds for local charities and good causes.

The presence of Covid scuppered plans during 2020 and the majority of 2021 to organise any events; however, we are looking forward to an active programme in 2023- details below.

We are a friendly group of people who all share the same passion ‘Gardening!’ whether it be flowers, fruit or vegetables. In addition to the aforementioned events, we also hold informative meetings with a speaker and arrange outings locally and further afield.

Meetings are open to members and non-members, novices and experienced gardeners, in fact anyone who enjoys a get together with others to hear and discuss gardening and related subjects, including wildlife and countryside issues.

Meetings are held in the afternoon on the second Tuesday of the month except when on outings.

Venue: Crickhowell Sports Association, Bowls Pavilion, Beaufort St, Crickhowell, Powys NP8 1AG

Current membership is £10 per annum, renewable annually at the AGM in February.

Why not come and join us? If you like what you see, maybe you would like to become a member. It’s a great way to make new friends whilst increasing your knowledge of all things horticultural!
