General Meetings are held in the Society’s hall on a monthly basis (refer syllabus). 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.
Meetings will be held on the second Saturday of each month at 2:00pm.
