An enormous amount of earth has been moved, trees removed, and she has done an amazing job in transferring her paddock into gardens.
See photos, under the Workshop heading above, and Steve's report is listed there.
We will miss her greatly, and we send our sincere condolences to Geoff and family..

Australia Day Parade, 2019
- The Buderim Australia Day parade was held on Saturday 26th January. Probably due to the extreme heat, there weren't many garden club members who participated, nor the usual large crowd of spectators. However, the participants enjoyed giving out colourful flowers and herb posies.
- The parade finished on the Buderim Mountain State School oval where the Men's Shed chaps organised games, and a lively band entertained the crowd. The vintage cars and marching bands created a lot of interest.
The winner of the best group were the Coastal Caring Clowns who were badly behaved babies connected to a large doll and pram.
The New Group will meet on 1st Wednesday of the month, from 9 to 11am. Ring 0448 714 561 to join this group.

David Edwards Memorial Seat dedication, 25th November 2018.
He was very community minded - helping with sound projects for Anzac Day and hall activities and generally where help was needed.
This seat is outside the Buderim Memorial Hall, facing towards the Village Park, and is surrounded by a garden which was created and will be maintained by the Buderim Garden Club's Shedders group.
Pictured above are the Shedders Co-Ordinator Teddy Gove, the BGC President John Lyon and Helen Wallace, together with David's family John Edwards (brother), Anne Stitz (sister), Bernadette McMahon (long-time friend from school days), Sue Williams (David’s twin sister), and John McMahon (BWMC Hall President).
Below, are the Shedders Group who created the garden, the finished seat, John McMahon presenting the verbal tribute, and the RAN plaque,.

The Buderim Garden Festival 20th & 21st October 2018.
Then there was a lovely clear day on the Saturday and most of Sunday, and the thunderstorm which came at 4:00 pm was just after all things were packed away. It was a sunny, successful weekend – the opposite to last year’s torrential rain!
Many thanks are due to the Garden Club members who contributed and made this happen.
Special thanks to John Lyon as the co-ordinator, John Sargaison as the Chief Steward, and Monika Stinton as the general run-around-fixer-of-problems.
There were record entries in the hall's Decorated Shoe section, and the children’s Small World Gardens at Milford Lodge.
Patricia Moses has posted many wonderful videos of the Festival events on Facebook. Check these out under the FB & Links window above.
The sum of $2,000 is being given to install "fairy" lights in 2 trees adjacent to the old Buderim P.O. in Burnett St., Buderim. Council approval is still underway for this to happen. This is still a work in progress!
