Coming Events

The Society's Regions and District Groups all hold a range of activities throughout the year. Activities include plant sales, wildflower exhibitions, tree and shrub plantings, bush regeneration days, garden visits, bushwalks and regular meetings.

The activities listed here are by no means a complete programme of all activities. They have been selected as being of particular interest to those who are not (yet?) Society members. They also include activities by other organisations.

Details of other Society activities can be obtained from these web sites of the Society's Regional Groups:

Horsham, Victoria

12th FJC Rogers Seminar: The Plant Family Goodeniaceae
Saturday 20 and Sunday 21

12th FJC Rogers Seminar Logo

The Seminar is being run by both the Grampians APS Group and the Wimmera Growers of Australian Plants. This will prove to be one of the very best seminars yet. Not only will there be experts to explain all about the science of the family, there will also be renowned horticulturalists, who will advise on how to grow these beauties in our gardens.

An exciting feature of the Seminar will be the sale of a large range of seldom available Goodeniaceae tubestock being grown by members of the Grampians and Wimmera APS groups. It will be worth registering simply to be able to buy some of these wonderful plants.

Another really exciting feature of the Seminar will be the provision of a series of botanical photo guides on inland Goodeniaceae, Western Australian Goodeniaceae and South-east Australian Goodeniaceae. These will be provided to all registrants on their very own USB stick, or for a little more, as a printed copy for those who prefer this option.

The Saturday will involve a wonderful day of lectures and discussions, followed by a great evening dinner and talk on Goodeniaceae at the lovely Lutheran School hall in Horsham. On Sunday, visits have been arranged to some of the best native gardens in the state, where many of the superb members of the Goodeniaceae family are being grown to perfection.

Full details of the Seminar, including registration details and Seminar newsletters (for latest news) are available through the 12th FJC Rogers Seminar Website.
