Meetings are usually held on the third Monday of the month from September through to June.
We meet in St. John’s Hall, 216 Church Street, Bath & sometimes we also connect via Zoom.

Due to the prevalence of COVID in our community,

the Bath Gardening Club executive has made the decision to require all members and guests to be up to date with their vaccinations to participate in meetings or other club events for the remainder of this membership year. This is to provide a comfort level to our members – some of whom are immune compromised.

We realize that the COVID situation is ever changing and we will revisit this policy for our next membership year starting September 2022.
