Halling Gardening Society (HGS) is for all interested in allotment and home gardening in Halling and the Medway Gap, Kent. HGS holds two flower and produce shows each year, in spring and autumn, open to members and public to enter; plus occasional talks.
See our Facebook page Halling Gardening Society Group to chat with other members, offer plant swaps, pose gardening problems hopefully to get useful answers or hints, etc.
A schedule of flower, vegetable, cooking, and art classes is published for each Show. See schedules at:
Don't be put off showing, experienced members will be on hand to guide you through preparing, and it's a real sense of achievement if you then walk off with a certificate. Go on, think about it!!! See the page above for hints and tips on preparing to show.
Halling Gardening Society was formed in 1977 and is run by its members through a committee elected each year at an Annual General Meeting (AGM). See also above the Society's rules and latest accounts and minutes from recent committee meetings and the last AGM.
COVID-19 latest (March 2021): Because of continuing restrictions imposed during the pandemic the Society has once again taken the regrettable decision to cancel its April 2021 Spring Show. Instead, as in 2020, the Society has organised a 'Virtual Flower and Veg Show', inviting anyone to submit photos of their flower or veg from eight classes, plus two for children. The results will be published on this website after 11 April 2021. UNDER CONSTRUCTION
