 Grafton and District Garden Club

“Connecting people with an interest in gardening, plants, flowers and nature.”     


A warm welcome to all visitors to the Clarence Valley during the Jacaranda Festival, we hope you have a great time.

Our club members are helping to water the Petunias in the big purple and pink barrels in See Park during the Jacaranda Festival. Flowers just make everything more festive, and we really appreciate everyone’s help to keep them alive in the heat. They are such a great photo spot.

Please note the next meeting is not on the first Thursday of the month as that will be Jacaranda Thursday.

Our next meeting will be on Thursday November 9 at the Joan Muir Centre, 194 Turf Street, Grafton from 10am to midday.

Entry is $2, please bring small change and morning tea to share if you are able. We will supply coffee, tea etc.

There will also be the regular ‘Bring and Buy’ table so if you have some plants, cuttings or produce you would like to donate, they are greatly appreciated.  Please label plants and cuttings to help others know what they are buying. Paper and pens will be made available. All proceeds go to our Club. Rosie will have her Table of Interest and there will be time for Ask Rosie.

Please bring along anything you would like her to talk about, or just a little something that is growing in your garden at the moment for others to see.

If you are not a member you are most welcome to attend as a visitor and just pay the $2 entry fee. However, the $10 membership fee is payable on your second visit.

Our Christmas lunch is on Thursday December 7, keep an eye on your email for more details.
