Affiliate membership is available to garden clubs and societies in Cornwall and offers two membership cards which can be used by members of the club or society to attend CGS events and also to obtain discounts available to CGS members. The Secretary of the club or society receives the usual regular membership mailings and a copy of the annual Journal. The CGS offers Gold and Silver Certificates for the club to award at its own local show. The annual Affiliates meeting offers an opportunity for representatives to network and share information with other clubs. We also circulate a list of speakers and judges. Affiliated societies can advertise their own events on the CGS website.
