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/

There are two ways to join Tender Shoots Network meetings:

(Method 1) The simplest way is to go to their YouTube page when the talk is about to start (either 7.30pm or 2.30pm) as we simultaneously stream the meeting Live on YouTube.  To join just click this link  www.youtube.com/c/TenderShootsGardenClubNetwork   or search YouTube for the ‘Tender Shoots Garden Club Network’ and then click on our yellow logo.  The advantage of YouTube is you can start the talk from the beginning if you arrive late, you can pause, rewind & skip any bits & still ask questions to the speaker via YouTube chat box.

(Method 2) If you wish to join the zoom meeting directly, please click the link below (or enter the Meeting ID on the zoom start screen) and enter the Passcode when prompted. It’s the same login for all meetings.https://us02web.zoom.us/j/4043014750?pwd=SVRibE0vRW5mTUFqdG1NblVxSlJPZz09 Meeting ID: 404 301 4750 Passcode: bonsai (Please do NOT post zoom details on the internet or Facebook.)
