The 2020 Annual General Meeting Programme in Morocco is POSTPONED UNTIL 2021
Due to the Covid 19 crisis, the Administrative Committee has decided to postpone the 2020 AGM in Morocco to 2021. Given the uncertainty regarding travel and group meetings it was better to act early to give participants peace of mind and to focus on a successful event in 2021. While the majority of participants have opted to roll over their bookings there are now places available on all tours. Please contact Angela Durnford.
The 2020 General Assembly will now take place on Sunday 22 November at 11.00 am at Sparoza.
All MGS Members are welcome to attend in person, travel restrictions permitting, or to live stream via Zoom. The meeting will include a guided video tour of Sparoza supported by a new digital map of the gardens. Those wishing to participate should register their interest with the local Branch Head or the General Secretary after 1 November.
The 2021 Annual General Meeting, Marrakech, Morocco
Sunday 7 to Wednesday 10 November 2021 - Bookings Open
Known as 'the rose among palms', Marrakech has a deeply-rooted tradition of making and preserving gardens and green spaces. The programme includes 14 varied and delightful garden visits. The MGS General Assembly will be held in the world-famous Jardin Majorelle in the YSL Auditorium. The Pre- and Post-AGM tour programmes are identical and will journey to Taroudant, a walled Berber town lying just south of the High Atlas to visit several private gardens, riads and palaces. We shall also visit a traditional oasis and encounter the unique argan forests. We will cross the High Atlas Mountains to explore the Mediterranean ecosystems, then descend to Ouirgane to sample Berber culture and traditions before returning to Marrakech.

Annual General Meetings over the Years
Over the years, members have been invited to some of the loveliest parts of the mediterranean world where they meet up with friends, old and new, in the warm October sunshine. Here are brief notes on all the Annual General Meetings that have been held since 1998.
