The Society participates in a number of activities which support the local community.  

Members maintain the flower beds at St. Mildred's Church as well as the Horse Trough in the High Street.

The Society holds an Annual Charity Plant Sale. The proceeds go to local charities.  The sale will be held on Saturday, 25 May 2024 from 9am on Tesco's Forecourt.  This is a very popular event.


Plant Sale 2023

The 2023 plant sale raised £4,136 which shared between our two chosen charities:  Mildred's Trust and The Kench Hill Centre.

This year the Society will hold a Garden Safari on Saturday, 10 June, when members will open their gardens to members of the public for a small fee, which will be donated to a local charity.  We raised £1,028 which was donated to The Hub.

The Society donated a Hot Bin to EC30, a charity based in the old East Cross Clinic. Children use their raised beds to grow produce and flowers.

EC30 Raised Beds Improved

A group of enthusiastic Horticulture Society members met up at EC30 with wheelbarrows, shovels and forks at the ready.  They spread a trailer load of horse manure compost on each of the raised beds making them ready for planting.

Scarecrow Saturday

St. Mary's Church in Hothfield had a scarecrow competition, which our Society entered.  Much needed funds were raised for the village of Hothfield.
