Garden Group

Group Leader: Marilyn Staus
Email Address:
Meeting Venue: As announced
Meeting Day and Time: Fourth Tuesday of each month at 1.30pm
Open to new members

The idea is to organise a variety of activities, mostly visiting members’ gardens and or patios; as well as Spanish friends’ gardens; also visiting local area gardens and/or nurseries for tours or perhaps short talks and a few other miscellaneous activities. 

Members don’t necessarily have to be the “dig in your garden” type, but may just enjoy looking at gardens or getting inspiration to tell their gardener.

Marilyn managed such a group for about five years in the US before moving to Javea.
