The Harbour Georges River (formerly East Hills) Group of the Australian Plant Society is an enthusiastic group of people, dedicated to growing and promoting Australian native plants. Our members come from a wide area including the Local Government Areas of Canterbury–Bankstown, Georges River, Bayside, Inner West, Strathfield, Burwood, Canada Bay, City of Sydney, Woollahra, Waverley and Randwick. However, you don’t need to live in this area to join the group.
Our meetings and activities
We hold regular meetings and events which are a great opportunity to meet people with similar interests - some with extensive knowledge and others just starting out! - but all with the common interest of learning more about Australian Plants. Visitors and new members are always welcome...
Our theme for 2022 is ‘Exploring our Patch’, with walks & visits to a number of the gardens & bush areas of our catchment – a wide variety of habitat types from rainforest to Sydney Turpentine Ironbark Forest (STIF) to coastal sand dunes. These will be supported by talks about the areas by local experts. We will also be showing off members’ gardens & the amazing variety of plants they manage to propagate & grow.
Meetings and events are held monthly, at the beginning of the month. Some meetings are presentations, held via Zoom and recorded, for those who are unable to attend at the time. The link is published in our newsletter & on our Facebook group site. Please contact us if you need access.
Other meetings are held at open air venues such as gardens or bush areas, with a picnic lunch or tea. These are held on weekends when possible. For the moment, they will be BYO events. Again they are publicised in the newsletter and on Facebook. In case of bad weather, we will have a Zoom meeting as an alternative.
Next Meeting: Sunday 5th June, 10.30 am
Royal Botanic Garden, Sydney
View the current exhibition at The Calyx - Inside the Tide
Details will be in the May newsletter.
Members and visitors are always most welcome. .
