Meavy Garden Society
First formed in 1962 the Society’s objects are to: “Extend the knowledge of, and encourage interest in, the cultivation of flowers, plants and vegetables” in a friendly atmosphere. We welcome all who are “interested in the objects of the Society” from a wide area around Meavy.
Therefore 2023 is the 61st year since the founding of The Meavy Garden Society.
We normally meet on the third Monday evening of months February to November, at 7:00 pm for refreshments with meetings starting at 7.30pm, in Meavy Parish Hall (PL20 6PJ). Everyone with interests in gardening is welcome to join, be they beginner or expert. Annual membership is very modest at £15.00 for a couple or £10.00 for individuals. For most months, once light refreshments and chat have been enjoyed, we have an outside speaker to give us their expertise on a wide variety of topics, with time for questions afterwards.
The Spring Fun Show is where members display their results from the winter in garden and conservatory. This commences at 7:00 pm in Meavy Parish Hall on Monday 20th March. While the judges make their decisions, members – and welcomed visitors – can exercise their brains with competitions. There is also be a raffle and homemade cakes & biscuits to go with the tea and coffee. Spring Fun Show 2023 Schedule
There are usually one or two self drive outings a year. (We are not organising a coach outing at present).
At the Summer Show on Saturday 12th August there are seventeen classes for cut flowers, shrubs, plants in pots and vegetables with a perpetual trophy for each, to be held for the year. See Summer Show 2023 Schedule for full details. Visitors are welcome to enter, but only members can be awarded the actual trophies. The Gordon Cross Trophy, commemorating a past president, is awarded on a points system for the highest total in all classes. The visiting ‘public’ vote for the best in each class. Exhibits are staged in the morning and the Show is open from 1-4pm. Teas are available.
In 2023 The Meavy Oak Fair will be on Saturday 24th June and hopefully once again there will be a stall manned by members of the Meavy Garden Society.
