All About Gardening Rename Competition


Gardeners love nothing more than a regular get together with others who share their passion, to learn from programmes and speakers, give away some of their bounty and, of course, socialise and enjoy some kai. The CHS has run our monthly gardening meeting, “All About Gardening” for over 25 years, doing just that.  The time has come for the programme to be reinvigorated. To launch a new season of meetings we need your help to rename it. Can you think of a fabulous and catchy name that encapsulates AAG?

All suggestions are welcome. Entries close Friday 12 August.

The winner will receive a free 12 month single membership to the CHS.  Enter here or drop into The Kiosk to tell us your thoughts.
