New gardening club for those with green fingers in Cornwall

If you are a gardener or a wannabe gardener in the coastal area of Pendeen, Cornwall, take note that help is at hand. A new club has just been launched, with the first meeting organised by Sandra Coak and future gatherings to be set as the members get the agenda underway. The first ‘official’ meeting took place on 10th January at the Centre of Pendeen, where future meetings will be held until further notice.

The goal, according to chairman Peter Wilkinson, is to get gardeners together in a spirit of cooperation, sharing their experiences in the ‘unique climate, soils and settings of Penwith in west Cornwall’ and how they deal with some of its ‘special challenges’. Those include a coastal climate that can be quite harsh and windy, though the area is one of Britain’s most noted for its natural beauty.

Mr. Wilkinson says the idea is for devoted gardeners to share not only acquired gardening wisdom but actual projects and costs. Borrowing a time-honored custom of the Amish in the U.S. (and others) the club may organise events like the Amish barn-raising, where members of the community get together to help with some task that would be too much for one man or family to handle.

The first planned ‘event’ for the club, scheduled for 14 March, is a talk and presentation by Melanie Camp on “The Plight of the Bumblebee”; it starts at 16:00 and the cost is £1.00. Anyone who has an interest in gardening in the coastal area is more than welcome to come and share ideas, suggestions and enthusiasm with others of like mind. For updates, go to
