The Three Villages Gardening Club near Colchester, Essex, asked both Darren and Linda Blunt to do talks at their monthly meeting.
First Darren gave a talk on Trees and Arboriculture work in the garden in September, then Linda gave a slide show on exotic plants from around the world that we might be familiar with to include garden plants, fruit spices, fibres etc. with both speakers donating fees to GDS. A light hearted quiz added to the evening and plant and chutney sales added to the fundraising. The club also very kindly dontaed the money raised form a raffle ( a signed book by previous speaker Bob Flowerdue) to the charity.
In all the talks have raised £233.00 which is a fantastic and is much appreciated. If you are in the Essex region and would like to book either speaker on a range of horticultural topics with fees being donated to the charity, then please go through contact us or phone 01245 259906.
