We’re thinking of you.
Many garden club members lost all or part of their gardens in the spring and summer bushfires. We can only imagine how devastating it must be to see years of growth and work destroyed and every gardener will understand and empathise with how they must feel about their losses.
The Garden Clubs of Australia’s President George Hoad would like to write to fire-affected gardeners to extend our sympathy and best wishes to garden club members whose gardens have been directly affected by the fires. And Mr Fothergills’ Seed has kindly donated packets of mixed flower seeds to be sent with the letter.
Zone Coordinators are asked to contact Director of Zones Glenys Bruun Email and arrange for the GCA President to write to fire-affected gardeners and pass on the seeds, together with the thoughts and best wishes of garden club members around Australia.
Australian Gardening organisations are always active and well. Lots of interest created for their members, Community gardens growing vegetables and whatnot, reaping the rewards everyday. Children actively involved with planting, maintaining, admiring and using what they grow. Clubs arranging interesting visits and programmes for their members who happily participate and contribute preparing, growing for displays, attending Fairs to meet and greet friends and exchange information, knowledge and news.
The GCA is achieving this as well by providing a wonderful Insurance cover so that everyone can go about their business knowing that all individual members and the gardening organisations have them covered.
