Gardeners Day Out & 170 Years Birthday

16 Jun 2018 - 9:00am to 4:00pm

Established in 1848 the Royal Horticultural Society of Victoria is 170 years old this year. This is a great achievement for any group but for a voluntary, non-profit body it is exceptional.We are likely to be the oldest such group in Victoria.  Unlike most such groups we have no paid staff and work on a fully volunteer base. We represent some 20,000 Victorians and 30,000 throughout Australia.  Our history is that of a vibrant community group, contributing greatly throughout to Victoria and wider horizons. Our society established Burnley Horticultural College as an example.

On the 16th June we will have a special day called the “Gardener’s Day Out”. We will have 400 gardeners and others all enjoying what they love.

It is a general excuse to have fun and enjoy gardening. A flyer is attached for your info. Jane Edmanson, Stephen Ryan and Attilla Kapitany will be present and it is just a good day for a gardener in Winter.

It is open to all and is remarkably cheap at $15 to attend.

 If possible could we get some air time before the June event (ie to encourage bookings).

 Love to discuss it with you and possibly arrange  a time.

 We know the programs limitations and requirements and can work with you.

 Please let us know either way.

 Kindest Regards

 Jennifer  & Don
