Vick and Rob5x3web

Following our AGM, we have a new Chairperson with Rob Andrewartha replacing Vick Winnall who was our Inaugral Chair over our first 3 years (pictured above). We appreciate Vick’s leadership in establishing our Committee.

Lindy Carracher continues as Deputy Chairperson, Jane Knowler continues as Secretary and Public Officer and Rory McGregor takes on the role of Treasurer. Chris Callaghan has joined us as our new Media Officer. The season Launch was held at the beautiful Springfield home of Marie and James Reichstein. Our Guest Speaker was the Hon. Dean Brown, AO, Chairman of the Playford Trust with whom OGSA is offering scholarships for horticultural students.

OGSA has been busy leading up to the new Season with over 30 gardens opening prior to Christmas. Our Spring Newsletter is posted under the News tab above and is full of really interesting articles. Please preview the gardens opening in the next few months under the “Current Season” tab. We have a special day at Port Elliott on Sunday 23 September featuring our “Port Elliot Garden Walk” presenting four small gardens and one verge. Prior to the opening of all of our gardens, you are able to download their “Garden Notes” and take these along when you visit. Hope to see you at lots of our gardens.
