The University of Bath Gardening Club was founded in 1967, shortly after the university was established, by Leonard Broadbent, Peter Thoday and Ray George, all closely associated with the then School of Biological Sciences. 

About 70 university staff and spouses attended the first meeting.

In October 2017 the club celebrated its golden jubilee with a dinner at the university for over 100 members and guests, with Peter Thoday, one of its founders, returning as the principal guest.
