General Meetings

General Meetings are held in the Society’s hall at 100 Hilton Rd, Sassafras on the second Saturday of most months at 2:00pm.

Contact: Sandra Seymour 0417 285 448

The meetings are open to all members and visitors and provide an opportunity for the main committee to keep members up to date with the activities and developments that are taking place in the gardens and the Society as a whole.  The meetings also present the chance to welcome new members and feature guest speakers who specialise in a variety of interesting horticultural subjects.  Occasionally excursions are taken to visit gardens of botanical significance or specialist growers/nurseries.
