The Society is planning a trip to the Bathurst area, from Monday 14 to Wednesday 16 October. On this trip we will be visiting gardens opened by the Bathurst Garden Club and a plant nursery or two. For insurance purposes, participants must be HSOC members. More details now available.
The Society was formed in 1929. Initially it aimed to foster the spirit of gardening in Australia’s very new national capital so that Canberra might become a ‘garden city’. The Society has been involved in many activities over the years including: seed distribution to members, planning the National Rose Garden, garden and flower competitions, public talks and floral displays, as well as the present day Shows, Bruce Trial Garden, and production of The Canberra Gardener.
