Community Engagement - Judging Masonic Village Gardens

CHGC members Margaret Franks and Maria Bell had the great pleasure to judge the Residents' gardens at the Coffs Harbour Masonic Village recently. It has been a privilege for Coffs Harbour Garden Club to provide judges for this competition for many years now.

There are many people living in the self care units at the Masonic Village who brilliantly maintain their own gardens (including some stunning vegetable gardens). This year was once again a challenge to find an all out winner as there were some amazing gardens entered. Each year brings something different to this competition and we never know what to expect and are constantly delighted to see many changes from year to year.

The beds are just 'popping' with colour, and clever use of both periennial and spring annuals making bright, cheerful displays. The level of maintenance was outstanding and it is obvious that there's much love found in the gardens of the Masonic village! 

Both Margaret and Maria took away some innovative ideas from these more experienced gardeners and hope to implement them in their own gardens.
