First of all, let us introduce ourselves.
We are a group of friends and neighbours who are living in East Clare, west of Ireland. A lot of us are based in a place called Glendree, Feakle. This is where the name of our garden club comes from.
It all started a few years ago when some of us got this idea of having a garden club in the area. Since then we've expanded members and now we're about 15 people (and a good few small ones!) from 8 households.
We have a meeting in early spring to decide which month we visit which house. The garden club is on once a month only, on Sunday for 3 hours from 10 to 1. So there is no huge commitment.
There is no money involved, either. We bring our tools for the work and food to share for lunch after the work.
This year, someone suggested that we should show our activities on the internet to give more people the idea, as every time we mention our garden club, we get a great response and everybody seems to think it's a fantastic idea.
We hope you enjoy looking at our garden diary on this blog, and hopefully it'll help you start your own garden club in your area.
