Dore Garden Club

Dore Garden Club was established in 2008 to encourage local interest in and enjoyment of gardening. 

Meetings are held on the third Wednesday of the month (with the exception of August and December) in Dore Methodist Church, 3 Savage Lane, Sheffield, S17 3GW from 7:30 pm to approximately 9:00 pm, see the programme for further information. The Dore Garden Club has a varied programme of talks, visits and outings which appeal both to gardeners and those interested in nature and the local landscape.

As well as the monthly meetings there are visits to gardens and other sites of interest.  Visits in recent years have included the National Arboretum, Breezy Knees Nursery near York, Brodsworth Hall and Gardens and Taylor’s Clematis Nursery near Doncaster.

Membership is open to anyone who is resident in Dore and the surrounding area. Membership for 2019 costs £16 per year. A warm welcome is also extended to visitors who pay £3 per event on the door.
