Dear AAFBG Members
I am producing the newsletter this morning with my dog on my lap. Who hasn’t worked with a cat or a dog helping them either on their laps at the computer or in the garden. My dog has been busy this last week doing both. Every week really, he just won’t be convinced this morning to sit next to me. Perhaps he is cold.
Remember to look at grant opportunities and think about whether you would like to be a host for a conference. Even if you don’t want to do it in the next year or two there is always going to be one every two years to think about.
I would love any news that I may share from your gardens even a photo or two. Email to me and I will always find a place in the newsletter or on our Face Book page.
In this newsletter I have:
- Current Grant Ops
- Grant ops listed by states
- Friends of Gisborne newsletter
- Link to a segment for Friends of Williamstown
- Link to WIlliamstown Newsletter
- Newsletter from Camperdown
- Botanic Gardens Conservation Council newsletter
- BCGI link to page
- Garden Clubs of Australia News
- Australian Garden History Society Conference Info
- Biosecurity News
- Justice Connect
- Impact Suite
Thanks for the positive feedback on the newsletter too, I really appreciate that. It’s good to know that most of groups open it up. Do many of the groups use MailChimp? It’s pretty easy.
Stay well and stay safe, stay warm.

My helper, Bijou and I. He is a rescue toy poodle, 9 going on 10 I think. Never spoiled!
