New Garden Group launched

U3A member Marilyn Staus is launching a new Garden Group.

Initially it will meet on the fourth Tuesday of each month at 1pm.

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.

If you are interested in joining the group, Marilyn would love to hear from you. She will pass on information of the first get-together to anyone who emails her at

“I am looking forward to hearing from people who love gardens,” says Marilyn.
