Eastry Horticultural Society

EHS has a thriving membership of over 50 members, meeting on the second Tuesday of each month starting at 7.30 pm in the Village Hall. The speakers are varied and very informative but not always about horticultural issues so there should be something there for everyone. In addition to the monthly meetings various outings are arranged.

Many members have a wide range of knowledge and understanding of gardening and are always happy to help with any queries or pass on tips. The meetings are always friendly with lots of chat over a cup of tea or coffee.

There are three shows in the year: Spring, Summer and the Annual show which is open to non-members, always worth a visit.
