 Grafton and District Garden Club

It was nice to see some new faces at our last meeting and many thanks to our guest speaker Annette Cook and her interesting presentation on the importance of growing gardens that provide habitat, food and water for animals, birds and insects. Made extra special by the fact that we all learnt a bit more about some of the less known native species in the Clarence Valley.

Grab a torch and wander out at night to see what’s in your garden. If you’re in town then maybe warn the neighbours first so they don’t ring the police.

We also shared plants and produce from our own gardens and had a lovely morning tea. Thanks to those who contributed.

Our next meeting will be our Annual General Meeting on Thursday March 3 at the Joan Muir Centre, 194 Turf Street Grafton, from 10am to midday and $2 entry at door to cover the venue.

Please bring morning tea to share if you are able.

We will have our ‘Bring and Buy’ table so if you have some plants, cuttings or produce you would like to donate, they are greatly appreciated.

Hope you can make it.
