General Meetings are held monthly at 9.30am on the last Tuesday of each month. Meetings usually include a guest presenter talking about all aspects of developing and enhancing a garden. The meeting venue is either in a member’s garden or at the Old Witta School Hall.  All members are welcome to attend and contribute to the development of the Club.


Sip & Snip

Sip & Snip is held monthly at 9:30am on the 2nd Tuesday of each month. It is an opportunity to see other member’s gardens and to obtain cuttings for your own garden.


Garden Tours

Escorted tours to gardens and garden related events are regularly organised where club members and friends can get together to enjoy the trip and meet others with similar interests.  See Diary Dates for details.
