Come along to our first Design Workshop and AGM July 29

Please come along to plan our garden. Have your say! What’s on your wish list for our garden? Let’s visit the site, check out our domain, and start listing what we want to do where. Spring is not far away, let’s get ready to greet it and grow!

We’ll spend some time in the morning getting to know the site. Then we’ll move on to the neighbourhood centre to get to work on our wish list, and start mapping and designing our garden.

At the end of the day, from 1-2, we’ll have our first AGM, where we’ll decide fees, operating times, other necessary business, and elect our management committee for the coming year. (Please consider getting involved in driving this next phase! Nominations welcome!)

Site Visit: 9:30 – 10:15 am at the Garden: Corner of High Street Reserve and Lawrence Hargrave Drive (behind the “Welcome to Thirroul” sign)

Workshop: 10:30 am – 1 pm at the Ocean Breeze Room Thirroul District Community Centre (behind the Library)

AGM: 1- 2 pm Ocean Breeze Room.

Bring/ Wear: Sturdy footwear, sun (we hope, if not, then rain) and insect protection for the garden visit. BYO lunch. Tea, coffee, provided at the Ocean Breeze Room. Bring ideas, dreams, wish lists, friends, relatives, enthusiasm! Pencil and notepad/ camera/ books, plant lists, whatever you’ll find useful in our planning session.

See you there! If you can’t make it along to the whole day, no problem, come for as much as you can.
