Established 1959 – our club is one of the oldest in Yorkshire.

Interested in Gardening, no experience required! Husthwaite & District Gardening Club is the place to be!



We meet at 7.30pm – 9.30pm on the second Thursday of the month (Sept, Oct, Mar, Apr, May and June) with annual membership at £10 starting in September or just drop-in as a visitor when you wish, £3.

Our meetings consist of a monthly speaker on a variety of gardening topics to suit as many people as possible followed by social time with tea, coffee and biscuits.

There are also club outings to gardens of interest and workshops throughout the year, discounts at selected nurseries and garden centres, an annual plant sale and an annual dinner.
