The idea of a Bribie Island Garden Club began after a conversation at church one day. Mavis McLaren and Shirley Scott sent out invitations to a group of enthusiastic ladies, and the first meeting of The Bribie Island Garden Club was held on 27th March 1984 with twelve members attending this first meeting.
The Club has grown in numbers even though the dark days of COVID 19 which shows you can’t keep our gardeners from sharing and caring.
The Bribie Island Garden Club’s membership is now over 100 with up to 80 members coming to the monthly meetings. The members exhibit their flowers, fruit, vegetables, and foliage in 23 different sections. The judges award points, which at the end of the year are collated, and prizes presented. At morning tea, the members view the judging tables, and much conversation is had between the gardeners. Our male membership is steadily growing, and the men are just as enthusiastic as the ladies at presenting their prized plants. Our Guest Speakers makes sure we keep up to date with all new gardening advice.
The Bribie Island Garden Club meets at the RSL auditorium every fourth Wednesday starting at 9.30 finishing by 11.00am. Annual Membership is $12.00 which includes a Club diary. The diary gives all the information on the judging requirements and other gardening tips. The Club also has monthly social gatherings and Speakers to regale us with information on a variety of subjects.
