Welcome back for 2018!
February will be a busy month with the following extra activities on offer:
Saturday 17 February - 10.00 am - 12 noon - Video Presentation: ‘Growing Australian Plants for Small Gardens, Pots and Balconies’
It will begin with a short discussion on native plants, then a picture show of a wide range of flowers, form and habitat. Most people know natives as being dull, straggly, difficult to grow, with some very uninteresting flowers. This presentation of the diversity and beauty of native flora is guaranteed to blow you away, and is worth seeing (even with brown thumbs) just to view the uniqueness and splendour of our own Australian plants. If sufficient interest is show, further Saturday workshops will be held where participants learn how to propagate plants from seeds and cuttings, and to pot up, transplant and care for them as they grow into maturity. Included will be a visit to a native nursery, and the Black Mountain Botanic Gardens in spring to view them growing in a natural environment.
Sunday 18 February – 2.00 pm - ‘Let’s Get Trivial’
On the third Sunday of each month, we are going to get ‘Trivial’ with a monthly round of questions to test your knowledge of all things general and at times a little bit quirky. You do not need to form a ‘team’ as they will be organised on arrival. Why not come along for an afternoon of ‘brain gymnastics’!
Saturday – 24 February – 10.00am – 12noon - 'Family History – Starting out Session’
This is the second meeting of the ‘New Starters Group’ and the format will be a workshop where small groups can look at individual families. That is the plan but will depend on the wishes of those who come along.
If you are thinking about researching your family history or don’t know where to start with the information that you have, this session will get you ‘started’.
All are welcome; whether you came to the first meeting or not. Members of the Family History Group will be there to help.
