Garden Club and it's history

In trying to find out when the Garden Club was established I came upon a wonderful little book titled 'For the Love of a Garden' 1950 to 2005. This publication was co-written by Jack Lawson (current member) and Betty Newton. The years between 1950 and 1967 were researched by Jack from newspapers and other historical records and the years between 1978 and 2005 were collated from minutes and newsletters of the Club by Betty.

From this publication it was found the Club had it's roots in The Horticultural Society which was started in 1950, a change of name to Horticultural and Orchid Society in 1964, and another change in April 1979 to the present Coffs Harbour Garden Club.
