Our next meeting
*** Our Next Meeting ***
Thursday 14 October 2021
7:30pm in Gilling West Village Hall
with Jill Cunningham
Jill Cunningham is a member of the North East Fungus Study Group and Mycology Leader for the Darlington & Teesdale Naturalists’ Field Club.
Her talk, illustrated with plenty of photos, covers a wide range of the colourful autumn fungi commonly found in the North East and explains their strange and complicated lives.
There will be a table of fungi to view and handle. Please feel free to bring in any fungi that you would like her to identify or discuss!
Members free, non-members always very welcome at just £3.
Based in the charming village of Gilling West, just five minutes from Scotch Corner, we offer a lively programme of events, activities and visits for everyone interested in gardens and gardening.
Even if you're a complete novice - or don't have a garden at all - everyone's always very welcome at our meetings.
In fact Gilling Gardening Society is not just for gardeners! We have plenty of meetings that are of general interest - this year, for example, we'll be organising a trip to Scampston Hall, running a workshop on creating seasonal decorations, having a slap-up afternoon tea and exploring the wealth of autumn fungi to be found in and around the Dales.
If you want to stock your borders or your greenhouse, members usually bring along a selection of seedlings, rooted cuttings and mature plants - yours for a modest contribution to Society funds!
Annual membership costs just £10, and visitors are always welcome to join us for just £3 per meeting (talks) or £4 (practical sessions) on the door.
