Following the extensive media reports concerning the plight of our primary producers that has been caused by the harshest drought to be experienced in decades, members of community organisations have been finding ways to raise funds in order to assist those who are affected and included in that are the group of green thumbs who belong to the Banksia Garden Club.

The club meets on the first Wednesday of each month and at both the October and November get-togethers, members have the opportunity to purchase items from a table that is loaded with a great range of donated goods and all monies from the sales of those goods will be donated to the drought relief campaign. As well as this, profits from sales at the plant table (a regular feature at meetings) will be added to the total amount that is donated.

At the monthly meetings, members have the chance to catch up with other keen gardeners and participate in judging the selection of plants that are brought along by members to show what they have grown. A guest speaker attends each meeting and club president Desley Horsfall pointed out that this is always someone who is associated with gardening. During the year, the club also holds open garden days, come and share events and other social events.
Anyone who would like to find out more about the Banksia Garden Club can call Desley on 3408 8470.
