20 members enjoyed a wonderful week in Cairns from the 9th to 16th of August. So many highlights! For many it would have been the visit to The Botanical Ark where Alan and Susan Carle have converted an old cattle station into a tropical rainforest. They have collected seeds from rainforests all over the world. At Rainforest Heart Orchard we tasted some interesting fruits and Davidson Plum Tea which has three times the antioxidents as blueberries. Thank you to Matt Mitchley and Lorraine and Neil Forgie who generously allowed us to visit their lovely homes and gardens. Not to mention all the amazing lunches, morning and afternoon teas! Thank you Ted and Coral for organising such a great trip.
The next meeting will be Sunday, 3rd December commencing at 12 noon. Location – Perthville Community Hall, 20 Rockley Street, Perthville . This meeting is the AGM and Christmas Party. Details in December/January newsletter. (see in News and Tips).
No meeting in January.
