Zone Day Update

This rose was named after Elizabeth's Aunt, Valerie Swane
The Garden Clubs of Australia Mid North Coast Zone day is being held 16 August at the Cavanbah Centre, Harbour Drive Coffs commencing at 9.30am. Cost of attendance is $30.

The Mayor, Denise Knight has agreed to do the 'Welcome to Coffs' on what she terms 'family time' and we are exceedingly grateful that she is taking time out to welcome us all.

Local Woolgoolga Vireya Rhododendron grower Neil Puddey will tell us about his journey from growing something he enjoyed to the international success story it is today.

Freelance Flower's Di Patterson will WOW us with a Floral Art Demonstration. The floristry industry has been Di's passion for the past 23 years, initially working from home but now has a florist shop at Northside Shopping Centre, Coffs.

The keynote speaker is Elizabeth Swane who is a member of one of Australia's best-known rose growing families. She has been involved in horticulture for over 30 years and is a firm believer in the hands-on 'have a go' philosophy to gardening.

Our GCA Zone Co-ordinator, Keryn Rodham will be on hand to keep the day running smoothly and also to introduce a representative from each club on what is happening in their club.

GCA Senior Vice President George Hoad will be in attendance to present awards and give an update on the GCA.

This day should be enjoyable to all gardeners/garden lovers with lots of inclusions for the day - morning tea, lunch, give-a-ways, discount vouchers etc etc.

This Zone Day has been sponsored by Total Gardens, Coffs and Mr Anton Sander.  Coffs Garden Club is exceedingly grateful for their support.
