Grafton and District Garden Club

Our new meeting venue for August is the Joan Muir Centre, 194 Turf Street, Grafton (Clarence Village), and still the first Thursday of the month i.e. August 4 from 10am, with a $2 charge on entry, coffee, tea, milk and sugar supplied by the club.

If you would like to bring something to share for morning tea that would be lovely but not essential.

We will have our Table of Interest and look at repotting an orchid with Rosie, and our guest speaker will be talking about our favourite purple tree. The Jacaranda.

Remember if you have any cuttings or potted plants or garden produce to spare you can bring them along to the Trade Table and help raise money for your club.

New members are always welcome, it is only $10 a year to join.

For more information send an email to [email protected] or ring Jane on 0438 593 032. You can also follow us on Facebook.

Thanks again to Action Coaches for getting us safely to and from the Quota Craft and Garden Fair at Alstonville. It was a bit showery but luckily the craft stalls were all under cover and we could check out the garden stalls in between showers.

Tracey from the Lismore Rainforest Botanic Gardens greeted us at their peaceful oasis where we had our picnic lunch. The rain stopped and we enjoyed an informative talk over lunch and then a wander around their amazing native gardens. They are having an Open Day on August 21 with free guided walks if anyone is interested.
