Meetings

Our monthly meetings are not just all about the business of administration but engagement in relevant gardening related things too.

We have the following at our regular meeting:

  • Competition Table – this is an opportunity for our members to display their beautiful blooms, potted plants, fruits and vegetables at our monthly meetings AND go into the running for prizes at the end of the year.  There are two CHGC members who volunteer to judge this monthly competition. After the November meeting all cumulative points are processed to find 1st, 2nd and 3rd place-getters. There is also a random prize draw for anyone who has tables exhibits over the year.
  • Gardener’s Diary – often we are lucky enough to have members who like to share their knowledge at meetings and give Powerpoint presentations.  At other times during the year members who have been away visiting other points of interest and gardens give a presentation too. If you are a member of the club and would like to give a short presentation please contact any of the Executive.
  • Guest speakers – Various speakers cover life skills and/or professional experience at our monthly  meetings throughout the year – usually pertaining to gardens/gardening.
  • Trading Table – Members bring plants, flowers, fruits and vegetables to our monthly meetings which are sold to other members at a very small cost for the benefit of the club (funds contribute towards subsidising the Christmas function).
  • Social Interaction – Our meetings are always a great opportunity for like-minded folk to enjoy each other’s company.
  • Library of donated books we have many gardening books which have been donated to the club over the years, if you would like to borrow any, they can be found in the cupboard at the rear of the room – please fill in the book what you’ve borrowed/returned.

Activities

Each month (apart from our regular meeting) we enjoy visiting local gardens or places of interest and participating in the maintenance of the Coffs Airport Air-side gardens. 

  • Monthly outings – these visits are looked forward to and it is a brilliant way for us to discover hidden delights within our region, with the excellent company of like-minded folk. Members can enjoy visits to gardens, specialist growers and other places of interest. These outings are held on the last Thursday of each month. Carpooling is encouraged to allow all members the opportunity to attend outings. This is usually done at 9:15am at the Botanic Garden (unless otherwise advised). We have a BYO morning tea at the first garden or other designated location. Full details will be available from the CHGC Newsletter (which is emailed to members), Minutes from our monthly meeting and the CHGC Calendar. We now share our outings with the Woolgoolga Garden Club and the days are always very interesting. The outing concludes with a lunch somewhere nearby the last garden – you don’t have to attend, only if you’ve the time.
  • Air-side Gardens – Coffs Harbour Garden Club have been associated with maintenance of the air-side gardens at the Coffs Harbour Regional Airport since 1996. This activity is one which the club is very proud of and we meet for around an hour of work and then go somewhere for either a coffee/lunch.  This represents basically (at least) a day’s labour of gardening.
