The GAF Programme

We hold six meetings a year usually on the evening of the first Thursday of the month in January, March, May, July, September and November. The first 5 meetings consist of a discussion or talk about a topic that members have suggested would be of interest to them followed by a break for coffee and tea. After the break there is a business meeting. The meeting in November is our Annual General Meeting. Everyone who is a plotholder in Glasgow can come along to our meetings.

This event is held in October each year. It takes place on a Saturday afternoon. There are various stalls with opportunities to buy seeds and sets ready for the next gardening season. Pickles, jams and home baking are also on offer along with activities for children and a cafe. For the adults there is a Plotholders’ Question Time and the presentation of awards for New Plotholders  and Allotment Associations. Everyone is welcome to attend.
