Bus trip to Sean Morrows garden at Pomona- Expressions of Interest

 Sean did a talk at one of our meetings a couple of years ago about ponds, frogs and wildlife in the garden. Everyone enjoyed his talk as Sean was a very informative speaker and has a lot of knowledge to share. He also has lots of edible fruits and vegetables in his garden. Some members have had Sean help them create a pond environment in their garden.

Many people have expressed an interest in going to see this garden.

Sean is happy to open his garden for the garden club on either: Thursday May 30th   or  Tuesday June 18th

We will have morning tea at the garden and he will show us around and do a talk and answer questions.

We would then have lunch somewhere nearby and stop at a nursery on the way back to Buderim.

Cost would be approx. $50.

 The other option is that Sean is having his garden open to the general public on Saturday May 18 for $2 entry fee.  The garden tour that day is at 9.30am.

There would be a lot of people going on this day so it will be more crowded than a bus trip with the garden club another day.

If you are interested in this trip please contact me with your preferred date before the next meeting on April 12 so I can work out which date is best and make arrangements.

This is the tour group on the steps of Government house on 27th February 2019



On arrival at Government House, the group were treated to a delicious morning tea, before being divided into 2 smaller groups for their tour around the magnificent interior and the garden - the guides proved very entertaining too!
