We also have a monthly networking zoom meeting for any club to join in with where clubs from across the country will get together to help and support one another. It’s a great way to chat to other clubs and share ideas. The meetings are the first Wednesday of every month at 7.30pm, so even if you just want to sit and listen in, please do join us. You don’t have to be affiliated, it’s open to every club.

As an example of our talks, see below the ‘How to grow Wildflowers’ zoom talk

Indy is now starting to do talks and is available from 2023 to give in person face to face talks to garden clubs in your venue. See the Speakers page for more info.
