Last weekend we celebrated our 25th anniversary at our Annual General Meeting. We were very happy to have Angus Stewart attend as our guest speaker to speak to us about propagating plants at Catherine Hill Bay in New South Wales, as well as doing the honour of cutting our birthday cake. Angus is well known to many of us as a Gardening Australia presenter, author of many gardening books and a breeder of Australian native plants.
We were also very proud to award Marjanne Rook a life membership. Marjanne does an amazing job leading the Growing Friends – a mammoth task, which also includes running their plant sales. She also assists as Booking Officer, is a member of both the General Committee and Activities Subcommittee, and also coordinated our BookFest earlier this year. She is a well-deserving recipient. Well done Marjanne!
