Diary Dates

Winter Solstice in Gleniffer with Dr Pepper

Sunday 19th of June 12:01 pm - 4:00 pm

As the winter solstice approaches (Tuesday June 21st) we invite you to invoke the communal spirit of connection in the garden.
A meeting of like minds, to cast off the trials and tribulations of the last 2-3 years. Let's shrug off the shackles and salute the sun with lengthening and (hopefully) brighter days to come. We'll manifest some magic; the strength and support from our group is a nourishing warm energy. As is the cake!
So come on down to the Promised Land 😉

If you are coming down with something, please do not attend the garden tour.

Coming? please click here to RSVP, to obtain the address and so we know who’s attending. Please RSVP even if you already know how to get there.

Organiser: Lisa O'Callaghan / or phone 0417 536 490

  • a talk back radio host for gardening advice on ABC local radio - Northern NSW for over 20 years;
  • the horticultural editor of ABC Gardening Australia magazine;
  • an occasional TV presenter and
  • the person who gave us an excellent presentation on pruning your fruit trees in December 2017.
