What's Happening


At our September meeting, the Guest Speakers will be Paul Sloane and Barry Taylor, two Port Macquarie growers who will be talking about the Culture and Breeding of Lycastes.   These orchids originate from South America and Mexico and include both cool and warm growing varieties.


How are your plants looking ?  Some Members feel that the weather has not been kind but we are all hoping to put on our usual first class display for public enjoyment and, who knows, that elusive blue ribbon may well decorate one of your own plants !!  The Schedule and other details re benching, etc., are on our website.  Look forward to your support, and don’t forget we welcome as many sales plants as possible to encourage people to try growing similar plants to those on display at our Show.


We have been rostered for another Sausage Sizzle on Saturday 23 September.  This is a major fundraiser for the Society, which enables us to purchase items such as our new PA system, and also to support the Workshops which have been organised this year.  As many of you will remember, the Sausage Sizzle does take a lot of organisation and we need as many volunteers as possible to help with setting up, sales, and then cleaning up at the end.  It is hard work but a lot of fun and you may be surprised at how many people you know who visit Bunnings on a Saturday !!
