When we are not limited by Covid restrictions, our meetings are open to everyone, and take place at the Stye Brae Centre, Gilnahirk Road, Belfast. Members start arriving at 7.45pm to check out the free materials and donated plants. The meeting starts at 8pm. Talks usually alternate monthly between Civic and Gardening topics.
Our club supports all types of gardening — cottage-style, native plant and succulent, vegetable and fruit and so on.
However, we do not limit our meetings to gardening issues. We are also a Civic Society and we arrange speakers on a wide range of topics. In the past we have heard about how to become a tour guide; the history of some of East Belfast's large houses; SD Bell's tea and coffee business ; local environmental issues as well as photographic presentations and demonstrations.
