At the member function in December 3 of our members were awarded honorary life membership for their dedication, commitment, and service to our organisation. Penny Foster, Linda Mahony, and Doug Mahony have been with the gardens for many years and are important advisors to the management committee through the ‘Garden Sub-committee’. They bring with them the wisdom of the Gardens’ history and many years of knowledge and service. We are so grateful for your continued service to our organisation and thank you for your advice and dedication.
Linda also gave us an account of the gardens’ history, click here to read.
Volunteers are the lifeblood of our organisation. To ensure that you find the right place to volunteer, YCG will host a monthly volunteer induction morning, on the first Tuesday of each month. Here you will learn about the Gardens, understand all the activities available to you for volunteering, enjoy a guided garden tour and meet all the other volunteers. The morning ends with a tea.
We look forward to welcoming all our new volunteers.
Once again YCG will have our stall at the Yandina Street Fair on Sunday, 19 August 2018. Come and visit us. We are also seeking volunteers who can help us on the day. If you are interested, please contact us.
The Queensland Garden Expo was bigger and better than ever before. YCG enjoyed a prime spot in the ‘Kitchen Garden’ area where we got to meet many of our current members and inspired more participation in the Gardens through the signing up of new members and workshop participants. Costa came to say hi and we showcased our unique Permaculture plants, how to create your own microbes and provided people with seed for a small donation. Thanks to our friends at Permaculture Noosa who shared the space with us. All and all it was a great 3 days where we hoped to have inspired people with the idea of gardening differently and more sustainably.
