INTERNATIONAL Mediterranean garden society
THE INTERNATIONAL MEDITERRANEAN GARDEN SOCIETY
The Mediterranean Garden Society was founded in 1994 in Greece by a small multinational group of friends – including some from South Australia – concerned that there was very little information available on gardening in the Mediterranean countries and in Mediterranean climate areas worldwide.
Now based in Athens, this group has spread to 39 countries and has a total of more than 1600 members. The society's official language is English and is affiliated to the Royal Horticultural Society in the UK.
The International Mediterranean Garden Society is a significant focus of information and exchange of ideas on Mediterranean Gardening.
