pinkberriesGardeners Exchange Group (GEG) is an informal network of avid gardeners from Jefferson and Berkeley Counties, West Virginia and beyond. Our purpose is to bring together people who share an interest in the practical, hands-on challenges and pleasures of gardening. Members are young and old; men and women; professionals, retired and working people; master gardeners and beginners. The gardening interests of GEG members are just as diverse: wildflowers to roses, fruit trees to mushrooms, water gardening to Xeriscaping.

GEG welcomes new members! You may participate at whatever level meets your interests and schedule. No previous gardening experience is necessary. Check the calendar to find out the location of the next meeting; you are welcome to simply show up; we have no membership requirements. We (usually) meet on the third Saturday of the month, April through October.

Sign up to be on the GEG Newsletter Mailing List

Join the GEG Facebook Group!

Join this semi-private group by request on the GEG Facebook page. Anyone can find the group and see who is in it but only GEG members (those folks on our mailing list) can see the posts. Add your photos; share your plants (and announce when the plants are taken!); post your news. Connect with your GEG friends!
