Daffodil Cottage is an oncology/palliative care and treatment facility in the grounds of Bathurst Base Hospital. This facility, originally built by the Bathurst community, provides treatment, advice and referrals to cancer patients from the Central West of NSW. Members regularly maintain the garden around Daffodil Cottage and having been doing so for several years.
The garden at Bathurst Independent Living Skills was a former community project. A beautiful and inviting space was created by members of Bathurst Gardeners’ Club and other community groups and students.
For the club’s involvement in community projects it has twice been awarded The Eleanor McLeod Award from Garden Clubs of Australia “For Outstanding Service by an Affiliated Club to the Community”.
Our next meeting will be held at 2pm on Sunday 3rd March, 2019. The venue is 223 Eleven Mile Drive. (about halfway along or 2.2 kms from the Kelso end.) The garden was a cow paddock 36 years ago. A lot of hard work has transformed the garden into what we see today. It has several different garden rooms, lots of trees, shrubs, bulbs, flowers and roses.
Please bring a chair, a mug and a share plate. Look forward to seeing you!
