After our exciting workshop with Tim Heard in early March (thank you so much Tim!), we look forward to our next meeting with much anticipation and renewed enthusiasm. Last year we decided a couple of changes for our regular get-togethers. They will now be held every two months and on a Saturday (unless a special event is organised). The venue will also vary to make it more attractive for members and add interest too.
So – our next branch meeting will be on Saturday 6th May and it will be a Garden Party!! Come along after 11am for an enjoyable social before our official meeting starts at 1pm. Please bring your camera, lunch (or plate to share), a chair and a cup/mug. Throw in a rug – if the weather is nice there is plenty of soft grass to find a spot.
And here’s another little sweetener: – there are lots of flowering salvias in the garden from which cuttings can easily be snipped and shared to those with greenish-thumbs. And loads of native bees are also there now – Tetragonula carbonaria, Teddy Bear and Blue Banded – busy and happy visiting blooms and just waiting to smile for your snap.
The venue is a private property so for more details and directions please call or text Diane (chair) on 0422 639 336.
Come along and have a relaxing day with fellow meliponists and gardeners – we look forward to seeing you there.
