The S.I.G.C was reformed after a 15 year absence through the auspices of Hill Rise Allotment Association in May 2011. The club meets throughout the autumn, winter and into late spring on the 3rd Wednesday of the months September to November and January to May and the 2nd Wednesday of December.
These evening meeting commence at 7.30pm and are held at the URC Free Church on Market Hill St. Ives.
Topics range from guest specialist speakers, Gardener’s Question Time and themed evenings. During the year meetings are held in members gardens where practical demonstrations or plant identifications and cultural needs are discussed along with friendly camaraderie. At least one national garden is visited each calendar year – 2012 RBG Kew and RHS Hyde Hall Gardens; planned for 2013 – RHS Wisley and hopefully the Olympic Park.
