February meeting and AGM

At our Annual General Meeting, we welcome our elected committee back for 2024.  We still require according to the constitution- 2 vice presidents/ treasurer and 2 more committee members which is 10 in total. Anyone interested?

Our President Lorraine McMiles read her report which outlined a very informative and successful.  The Treasurer presented the audited financial report showing a small increase on 2022.

Then our intriguing speaker Alexandre Felix, a Frenchman from the newly created, Earth Rising Mushroom Farm at Lawson explained how he grows gourmet mushrooms for fine dining restaurants  and medicinal mushrooms. He brought some amazing samples for us to look at. The rain meant we cancelled visiting Joan’s Garden but we will try again in April. We did visit the Alexandra Hotel for an enjoyable lunch break.

2024 Community Project

We ae investigating supporting the revitalisation of a strip of land located on Everglades Road between Craigend and Northcote Road.  Currently a group of local residents are doing the heavy work of weeding and removing years of bramble and other invasive weeds.  They plan to make a walkway of beautiful natives and ferns. We hope to support them by obtaining a Blue Mountains Community grant for plants that need to be purchased.
