New members are always welcome. We have 6 meetings each year where a special guest gives a talk, and each meeting gives you an opportunity to have a say in the management of the Gardens. Membership fees are just $A11 per annum (single), $A22 per annum (double).

You can join online or by printing out the Membership Form, filling it in and sending it with a Cheque or Money Order for the membership fee to:

A Newsletter is published 6 times a year. Members have the option of logging-in to the private Members’ area and view the Newsletter online.

Every Monday a group of volunteers has a working bee in the Gardens. This is a rewarding and satisfying day and you would be welcome to join in. Your involvement would really make a difference.

In both the Spring and Autumn there is a large working bee which is attended by many volunteers and is important in the overall Garden management.

The General Meetings are held on the third Saturday of every second month, at 2 pm, with the first meeting of the year in February. These are always interesting and stimulating.

The Lodge in the Gardens opens from late September to early November.  For the exact dates, please check our calendar. Volunteers from the Society run the tea rooms during this time. This is our major fundraising activity for the year.
