Green Thumbs Unite As New Garden Club Grows
by Brighton Council
The newly formed Brighton and Surrounds Garden Club saw a fantastic number of people turn out to their recent meetings. Their first guest speaker, Richard Weston, from Weston Farm, shared knowledge about his peony roses and other produce along with Brighton’s soil conditions.
The club has introduced a trade table to their meetings where members can donate items to sell. The funds from this trade table go back to the club for future events for active members. Brighton Hardware Hub donated plants and herbs. The group is also planning a Winter in July function, so be sure to look out for that.
If you would like to be part of this growing local Garden Club, pop along to one of their meetings. The next club meeting will be Monday 28 August, 7pm at the Pontville Hall, 244 Brighton Rd, Pontville, following a short winter break.
Membership is $50, or $30 for concession and Senior card holders. To learn more, head to their Facebook page or contact Louise Bennett (Club President) on 0407 877 779.
