Co-Ordinator Karen reports:

The weather for our bus trip was perfect, several new members came along, one member from Nambour Garden Club also in Maleny Garden Club, and we made new friends.

Morning tea at Lake Macdonald was a hit, yum bikkies and buns, and mandarins with tea, coffee, and juice. Everyone enjoyed this. Plenty of time to eat, drink, chat and have a comfort stop. Thank you to all who helped with morning tea, serving tea and coffee and slicing the yummy buns.

Sean Morrows garden was amazing, we didn’t get to see it all but he was very informative and helpful, showing us vege gardens, fruit trees, bush tucker, wildlife and ponds, and we got to do taste tests and take home what we found along the way! We could have easily spent half the day there exploring but unfortunately we had to leave to go to lunch…

Joes Bar and Grill provided a lovely lunch, corned beef or fish and chips for mains, and cheesecake or apple rhubarb crumble for dessert. They looked after us very well and there was plenty of time to chat, have a comfort stop after lunch and wander back to the bus before heading to Rosemount Nursery, which was suggested by Stella and John and Kathy.

This was a very good nursery, good range of plants, very interesting succulents and others. Most people found something to take home.

We dropped off people along the way home by our very helpful coach driver Paul from Wests.
