BBLAC Gardens Galore
The Gardens Galore activity is usually held on the first Sunday of each month at 10am.
We do prefer visiting private gardens if possible and many of our BBLAC members have kindly opened their gardens for our group. Any member of BBLAC is welcome to attend any Gardens Galore event, but we ask that bookings are made with us by phone or email by the Friday before for confirmation, when they will be given the address, if applicable. A light morning tea is usually provided by the convenors and the home owner is always asked if they prefer a cap on numbers. We ask for a $2 gold coin donation to cover costs. The average time spent is usually around 90 minutes. We are always keen to hear of anyone interested in opening their garden to members.
Some of the many outside venues we have visited are Coombe Cottage, Beleura, the National Rhododendron Gardens, Tesselaar’s Tulip Festival, Monash University Earth Science Garden, Heronswood and various local nurseries.
Every December there is always a popular break up party at a private garden.
We ask that any interested members keep an eye out for global email reminders, usually sent a week before.
If you are a new member please come and introduce yourself to Sue or Verena. All our members are very friendly and welcoming and we are sure you will enjoy your time with us, whilst getting to see some very beautiful and sometimes different gardens.
Please wear your name badges and bring your I.C.E. cards to all events.
Convenor: Sue Rawson
