What a pleasure it will be to welcome members and friends back to our November meeting and AGM at the John Taylor Room, commencing 7:30pm on Monday November 15th.

Chris Clarke will be joining us to present on Alpine Flora.  Chris has had a deep interest in Australian native plants for the past 40 years.  He volunteers for his local Gardens for Wildlife program and is the current serving APS Victoria President, having held the role since 2019. 

Our usual sweet & simple AGM will precede the main evening presentation. This year we have a very special announcement and tribute to make, but shhhh… It’s a surprise!!!  So we can’t tell you more until the night.  Please do come along to help us mark important milestones and show some very much deserved appreciation for longstanding contributions to APS Mitchell Group. 

The presentations will be followed by the evening Door Prize plant raffle, flower specimen table discussion & conclude with time for supper & chat. 

Meetings at the John Taylor Room will be held under the guidelines of our Covid safe facility plan.  Please read the plan prior to attending, & RSVP to Ian Julian to assist in managing numbers (details below).  Masks may also be required, so please bring one with you.

Visitors, guests and friends are always very welcome at APS Mitchell meetings.  Attendees are encouraged to bring along native plant specimens from their gardens for our Specimen Table display & discussion (please label with species name if known).
