Community - Keilor Garden Club

The Keilor Garden Club is this year coming into its 40th year and have held meetings at the school for most of that time.

 

The club promotes both the  social side, and of course, all aspects of gardening, both decorative and food growing.

 

Each month we have a guest speaker talking on subjects of propagation and garden products, such as tooling, seeds, and fertilizer production.

 

We also have a show bench, so members can take part in floral arrangements, potted plants, fruit and vegetables.

 

       Our ideals are :-  Fostering a love and appreciation of gardens.

                                   Stimulating an active interest in sustainable gardening.

                                   sharing friendship and general gardening information.

                                   Increasing our knowledge by listening to specialist speakers.

 

Our meetings are held on the last Friday of each month except November, December, and January at 8pm.

 

I feel that it is so important that both adults and children should be better educated, as to where our food comes from, and a visit to our club would, I believe assist in their knowledge.

 

Our membership fees are only $12.00 per year, and we generally hold  a breakup party in November at a subsidized rate.
