An unexpected visit from Don Rickerby, President of the Royal Horticultural Society of Victoria, Jennifer Rickerby, Secretary of RHSV and Paul Crowe former Principal of the State Schools Nursery, patron of the Kevin Heinz Foundation and active in the Nurseryman’s Association, surprised Kevin and upset the agenda planned for the evening.
This visit was for the presentations of the John Pascoe Fawkner Award to Bob Shelden and Kevin Hince for their outstanding service to horticulture, community activities and their service to the Upper Yarra Valley Garden Club over many years. These awards have been almost a year in the planning and have been organised with the utmost secrecy much to the surprise of the recipients. Thanks to Shirley, Jenny, Joy, Janet and Ros.
We are pleased to announce our annual Open Garden Show is on, the first weekend of October. Come visit 5 of our members’ gardens and maybe purchase plants for your garden or enjoy a quick BBQ on your visits.
I have created an additional page in the website called “What’s On?”
If you have any knowledge or information about a show relating to gardens within the Melbourne area that you think members would like to attend, please email the information (Name of show, location, dates and times, with a short sentence describing what the show is exhibiting), I will include it in this page for all members to have reference to. Great!!
Please take note of the updated Club Diary – Revision 22 June 2016
Since we started this website, we have had ‘visitors’ from the following countries: Brazil, Italy, United States, Portugal, Malaysia, Ukraine, Chile, India, Bahamas, South Korea, Mozambique, Indonesia, Mexico, Canada, Trinidad & Tobago, Bulgaria, Peru, France, Venezuela, and of course Australia.
If we have more information and gardening tips, I’m sure we can be even more useful as a reference for gardeners around the world. So dig deep into your ‘remembering’ bank thingo and send the ideas through so they can be included.
