* Garden Buddy Scheme - As part of the Society's Centenary Year celebrations in 2009, we initiated a 'Garden Buddy' Scheme (pdf). The Buddy (an experienced gardening member) visits those who want to discuss the plans or problems for their garden and develop a plan of action. This might include preparation of beds, choosing suitable plants, guidance on general maintenance, etc. It cannot include carrying out actual work on the garden. Our aim was to celebrate our Society's Centenary as a community of gardeners, able to learn from one another, grow in expertise and enjoy our gardens. To find a Buddy (or become a Buddy), please contact Sonia Mathias 87 Willifield Way, London NW11 6YH (email@example.com). You must be a member of the Society to benefit from this scheme.
