Welcome to LDGA
Letchworth District Gardeners Association (LDGA) was formed in 1906 to promote horticulture to the residents of Letchworth Garden City and the surrounding areas. Today, we have around 700 members with a keen interest in gardening of all types – flowers, fruit and/or vegetables, grown either at home or on an allotment.
Our 365 Days of Colour evening with Nick Bailey planned for 19th March has been postponed until 18th February 2021.
Later in the year we plan to welcome another well-known gardening personality to Letchworth. At the moment, this evening remains unaffected.

If you are not already aware, NHDC have taken the decision to suspend the garden waste and food waste caddy collection until further notice. This is because of concerns about staffing levels and staff safety. For more information visit the NHDC website garden waste and FAQ pages. They are advising that all food waste should be placed in the purple non-recyclables bin.
For those over the border, Central Bedfordshire Council have also suspended their garden waste collection but continue food waste collection for those that have it. For more information visit the CBC website.
Members living in other areas should check with their local provider for up to date information.
We are aware that during this period of enforced social isolation, some of our members, particularly if they live alone, may need someone to chat to. Well, we at LDGA are always available for a natter if anyone would like us to call. Just send an email to email@example.com stating your name and phone number and we’ll get back to you. Also, if you know of any members who don’t use email but would appreciate a call, pass on their details too (with permission).
