Local History                            3rd Tuesday 10 am

Local History at RussellThis group appeals to people who are prepared to contribute ideas and share in arranging visits to places of historical interest. Members decide at each meeting which site they would like to explore the following month. Then one or two people share in the research and planning for that trip. Sometimes they arrange for a local expert to share their knowledge with the group.

Garden Group                           3rd Tuesday 2 pm

This is a friendly group of keen gardeners with all sorts of gardens.  They share the hosting, so they can see each other’s gardens, discuss challenges and get useful feedback. Between them they have lots of knowledge, many skills and a variety of experiences.

The group started with a planning meeting in April 2018 then, in their next four meetings, they looked at pruning, edible gardens, companion planting, weed control, composting, plant nutrition and native bush regeneration. Members enjoyed a whole lot incidental discussions varying from new bugs to the perfect Guava moth trap recipe!
