June & July club outing details

Hi to all my fellow garden club members,

Below is information on this and next month's outings and the Programs Committee would love you to join in on these visits if you can.  It is not only interesting to visit these places but it is a wonderful opportunity to network with your fellow club members.  If you have not already let Secretary Maureen email Maureen here know, could you please email me email trish here if you would like to attend, especially for the Lemon Myrtle Farm as they are providing a free morning tea!

PERRY'S LEMON MYRTLE FARM - from their website:
The Perry family established one of the first commercial Lemon Myrtle plantations nearly 15 years ago and is situated on the Mid North Coast of NSW, Australia. This is a highly conducive region for growing Lemon Myrtle trees in their native environment and as a result we have been able to produce a very high quality of oil and are able to provide the consumer a high quality product giving the most helpful benefits available from our PURE Lemon Myrtle Oil. Benefits can only be obtained from the use of pure essential oil, thus making its use in aromatherapy products such a success. One cannot obtain unique fragrance, flavour or the helpful antiviral and antibacterial properties from an artificial product. Because of the very rich citral oil content, its soothing properties and its ability to be used in so many different industries, Lemon Myrtle Oil leads any other products in this classification.

Our special offer provides a free “Lemon Myrtle Experience” consisting of: Lemon Myrtle Tea, Lemon Myrtle Cheese Cake with fresh cream followed by a serving of Lemon Myrtle Ice Cream,  followed by the educational talk on the growing and processing of Lemon Myrtle, and the extraction of our Lemon Myrtle Oil developing it to product stage. Enjoy the samples of our Lemon Myrtle Rainforest personal care products, then visit our interesting Gallery for the purchase of our Lemon Myrtle products, jewellery and artefacts.

Travel - meet at the Botanic Gardens at 9.30am unless prior arrangements have been made to pick you up on the way.  If you go in someone else's car, you will need to contribute towards petrol costs.
Lunch - I have been assured that the morning tea is quite filling however, we do have a couple of options for after the visit i.e. go on to the Taylor's Arm Pub with No Beer or go to the picnic area on the beautiful Nambucca River.  For those that are attending, could you please email me email trish your preference so those that want to have lunch know whether to bring it with them if we don't go to the pub.

JULY OUTING - VALLEY OF THE MIST from their website:
Valley of the Mist is a working Bush Tucker farm set in 47 hectares of beautiful bush land forest. An orchard of 10 hectares has been established which is dedicated to growing an amazing variety of native fruits and nuts using low impact sustainable farming methods. Visitors can see how we work with nature to produce the amazing Davidson plum which must be seen to be believed - as the fruit grows in huge bunches from stems which form directly on the tree trunk itself!  Valley of the Mist is located five kilometres west of Macksville.

Travel - we need 34 to hire the mini bus so please email me, email Trish asap if you would like to attend.  Bus cost is approximately $20.  Otherwise we will have same arrangements as for the lemon myrtle farm visit.
Lunch- to be advised closer to the time.
