Hampstead Horticultural Society is a membership organisation which has been set up to encourage residents of the former Metropolitan Borough of Hampstead to cooperate in the cultivation of vegetables, fruit and flowers. The society is run by a committee which consists of current HHS members who are elected by the members of our society at our Annual General Meeting.
Our yearly activities include two horticultural shows with competition classes for flowers, shrubs, plants, vegetables, fruit, flower arrangements and cookery, two illustrated talks at Burgh House in Hampstead, social events and plant sales.
We hope to reestablish our Hampstead Horticultural Society Meetup Group so that we can amalgamate it with the Transition Belsize Meetup Group. We hope that our members will start cycling to meetups to support the "promotion of healthy recreation" "in the interests of social welfare" and as a community response to the triple problems of peak oil, climate change and chronic absenteeism/lack of governance in community groups.
