Gesneriad Study Group Meetings

The Gesneriad Study Group meets on the second Sunday of the month at a member's home, a different venue each month.

Meetings start at 2pm, except the January meeting starts at 10am.
We focus on a topic and a volunteer prepares a presentation and leads the discussion.

Members and visitors are welcome, contact us for this month's venue.
