Strathalbyn Garden Club

Welcome

​​​​



Membership​


The Club's average attendance  pre COVID-19 at its monthly meetings was 90. This from a total of 150+ financial members. In a town of Strathalbyn's size, these are very pleasing figures indeed!

The initial cost to become a new member of the Strathalbyn Garden Club is currently $20, which comprises $10 for a year’s membership subscription, plus $10 joining fee. Continuing membership is then $10 per year thereafter, due at the Annual General Meeting held every June of each year (the Committee reserves the right to alter any future membership fee at the Annual General Meeting in the interests of the welfare of the Club).

If a member is planning to be absent for a significant time, they are encouraged to pay their subscription for the coming year in advance. This will eliminate the need for them to have to pay the additional joining fee if their membership expires while they are away.

The annual membership subscription is kept at a nominal sum as it is subsidised by a Raffle, a Donation Table, a Sellers’ Table and various other fundraising activities.

Good morning gardeners

This month we celebrate 25 years of gardening, friendship and occasional frustration as a much loved plant just turns up its toes for no apparent reason – but we keep trying!    Attached is the July Newsletter, compiled by Jen Engelhardt and what a great first up effort it is.  Well done and thank you Jen.

Our next meeting is this Friday (22nd), 9.30 for 10am, for our anniversary celebrations (remember no raffle or trading table).

David Thomas, President.
