2018 Calendar

 

Meetings are held on 4th Tuesday Wednesday of every month while our venue is being renovated - see below. We do not hold a meeting in December.

Doors open at 7pm for ‘early bird’ plant exchange and sales. Official meeting starts 8pm. 

We are always on the lookout for persons who may be willing or able to give an interesting  presentation on a relevant topic at our meetings.  If you think you might be able to do so, or know of someone else you would like to hear a presentation from – please let us know This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..  

Venue: Mt Waverley Youth Centre, 45 Miller Crescent, Mt Waverley Victoria 3149 
TEMPORARY CHANGE OF VENUE & TIME: As the notice on our front page, the meetings for March through to June are being held on the 4th WEDNESDAY of each month, at the MOUNT WAVERLEY YOUTH CENTRE (directly adjacent to our usual venue). Doors will open at 7:00pm; the Society asks that those not involved in setting up remain outside until then, as this venue has limited room. Sellers are asked to limit their plant numbers at these meetings for the same reason.

 

Members are requested to wear their membership name tags when attending any of our meetings or events.

 

We welcome all of our members and visitors to our current calendar. Visitors and guests of members are most welcome to attend up to three(3) monthly meetings before being required to become members of our Society.

Please note there is an entry fee for visitors - refer to signs at venue.
