If you enjoy gardening and have an interest in Australian native plants we offer a pleasant social group meeting. Attendees’ experience ranges from novice to expert – all are welcome.  Meetings include garden and nursery visits and varied discussions on many subjects related to the growing and care of Australian plants.
