Our First Meeting for the Year 2017 is Saturday, 25 February. This meeting is the Annual General Meeting so would all members please be present to help elect our committee for 2017. Last year's committee will have reports to present to our group and they are always good fun to hear.

Our guest speaker who began as a teacher and then horticulturist, is Judy Horton. She will talk on "Privet Gully to Rainforest". Judy Horton has had over a decade of experience as a garden adviser, and seven years with the NSW National Trust as a bush regenerator. She is the author of two gardening books and many articles for gardening magazines.

We have many knowledgeable and committed members and it's great to be among those with similar interests. We will also have afternoon tea and a chat and they both are offered free of charge.

Members and visitors, you are both bound to find something that is new and fascinating.

Date: Saturday, 25th February 2017
Time: 2pm
Venue: Gumnut Hall, Gumnut Place, Cherrybrook

The following meeting will be in April.

How about learning to propagate native plants?

We have a small, hard-working, happy group of members who propagate once a month at the Bidjigal Community Nursery.

The Hills Shire Council kindly let us have the use of their facilities to do all sorts of interesting things, like propagating from cuttings and seeds and potting up successful seedlings and rooted cuttings. Plus, as the plants grow, we put them in larger pots until they are ready to plant.

You are welcome to join us to observe and join in when you are ready to have a go. It's quite easy once you get the hang of it. The nursery is such a lovely, peaceful place and we have a bench set aside for our pots. There is so much more to tell, so do come along some time and meet us!
