WFGA Events Programme 2019

The WFGA is recognised for its WRAGS placements but there is a lot more that we do to try and provide training and practical experience opportunities for people interested in horticulture.

Please find below our calendar of events for 2019.  Please note that not all of these may be available to book on our website immediately and further events will be added throughout the year.
