About Us

Details
Faversham Horticultural Society is a friendly group of keen gardeners, both beginners and those with more experience.
The Society was established in 1948 with the object of encouraging the cultivation of flowers, fruit and vegetables.

We meet once a month for talks and for social evenings such as quizzes, and we also hold an annual lunch and arrange garden visits.

There are three shows each year, Spring, Summer and Autumn, with a wide range of classes, including flowers, fruits & vegetables.
There are also classes for indoor plants and flower arrangements, home economics and crafts - so you can take part even if you don’t have a garden.

 

Membership
Annual subscription: £5.00 per person, plus £2.00 per meeting to cover refreshment costs and a raffle ticket.
New members are always welcome.

 

Benefits
An interesting way to spend a few hours a month with a friendly group of people who share a love of gardening and growing.
