The Tender Shoots Garden Club Network is a national collective of UK garden clubs set up during the worst of the Covid 19 pandemic to work together, have joint online events, and to share resources and experiences. The Tender Shoots Garden Network are promoting regular Zoom meetings to which all WHS members are invited to join for no charge. The list is being updated regularly. The Network has its own website at https://tendershoots.uk/
The next zoom talk is this Wed 29th Nov 7.30pm – George Hargreaves will be giving us a talk on the topic of ‘Botanic Gardens of the UK’. Zoom link below (it’s the same code as usual this time, but next year there will be a different code for members only talks). This will be Georges first zoom talk who is a volunteer at Westonbirt Arboretum, he also won our £200 garden tools prize in the Tender Shoots Christmas Quiz, so he’s pretty good at answering questions and is very knowledgeable.
