Our AGM has been booked for Thursday March 2nd at 7.30pm. It will be held at Maroondah Federation Estate, Greenwood Ave Ringwood. The AGM is a great opportunity to meet other members, catch up on nursery projects and hear about what is happening in our local bushland reserves. Our guest speaker for the meeting will be Craig Mauger – Bushland Team Leader for Maroondah City Council. All committee positions become vacant as of the AGM and, as a number of existing members will be retiring, there is opportunity for new members to join the committee. If you would like information about committee roles please contact one of the current members or the nursery. Nomination forms are available from the nursery.
