Guest Speaker: June Valentine

Topic: Herbs of the World

Thursday 7th September 2023

PLUS: lots of Evergreen Garden Care plant food samples

Please note a late change to the guest speaker for this event.

Unfortunately, the planned Guest Speaker, Shaun Buckley from Evergreen Garden Care is unable to attend, but he has provided lots of their plant food product samples and EVERYONE will get to take some home.

Instead, please make welcome our hard working committee member, June Valentine, with her quirky and charming presentation on the world of herbs. Just how long have chillies been a staple in curries or when was a peppercorn worth more than gold?

Plus: Stay for Herb Tea and a bite afterwards.

If possible, please bring a plate to share and/or herbs for herb tea or assist at the tea trolley after the main event.
