GLEBE GARDEN CLUB (IPSWICH)
The Glebe Garden Club (Ipswich) was formed in November 1999. While it is an outreach ministry of the Glebe Road Uniting Church, Eileen Street, Booval, it’s primary role is that of a community garden club servicing the community and open for anyone in the community to join and become a member. The club operates in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, is multifunctional in its activities and does not specialize in any particular area or plant species. It is a general garden club!
The Glebe Garden Club conducts its club functions on the first Saturday of every month commencing at 1.30 pm. While the program for each club function varies, the format revolves around guest speaker, helpful hints, gardening news, question time, birthday club, lucky door prizes, and afternoon tea. The cost of each club function is $2.00 per person. Members can also become financial members at a cost of $5.00 each year.
Club activities have not been limited to in-doors, but also out-door activities, some being bus trips, visiting personal gardens and parks, and presenting horticultural displays at various shows. The club has also taken on a project, in conjunction with the Ipswich City Council, to re-furbish and re-open Queen’s Park Glass House to the public.
The focus of the club has, and will always be, people. Because the club involves members from many walks of life, it is totally focused towards the sensitivity of its members. It is often in sharing and working alongside others that the greatest bonds of friendship are built, and meaningful dialogue takes place. You are most welcome at the Glebe Garden Club!
