Upcoming green thumb events

Orchid Club

The Sapphire Coast Orchid Club is restarting its monthly meetings on the last Thursday of each month, starting this week on February 25. The meetings will be held in the Bega CWA Rooms on Church Street, from 7 pm. This month the club will be talking about mounting orchids on different materials. For any inquiries contact club president Jeffery Knox on 6495 1312.

District Garden Club

The Merimbula and District Garden Club welcomes all their members and visitors to their first meeting of the year at the Merimbula RSL which will be held in the upstairs Lantern Room, on Saturday 27 from 10 am.

There will be an interesting display of succulents grown in unusual containers by members, as well as the popular raffle and a cuppa when members arrive.

The club believes that gardening has lots of benefits, such as helping loneliness, exchanging gardening ideas and plants, enjoyable exercise, creating friendships and growing delicious vegetables and fruit.

Members also enjoy going to Garden Club meetings to see the floral and vegetable displays, amazing guest speakers and the monthly plant trading table.

The club would like to remind members that their calendars and some of their Garden Australia magazines are available at the meeting.

Membership subscriptions and Garden Magazine orders will be renewed at the meeting on February 27.
