Proposed changes to our Constitution

Earlier this year, our 2015 Constitution was reviewed in light of changes to relevant legislation and current best practice. Proposed changes to the Constitution were set out in a discussion paper that was available on our website, and comments sought by 30 April. Thank you to those who provided comments. As only positive feedback was received, the proposed changes will be presented as a resolution to the October 2022 Annual General Meeting (AGM) for approval. Any change to the Constitution must be agreed by at least a three-quarters majority of voting members present at the meeting.

Growing Friends’ Getting Ready for Spring Sale

Canberra gardeners will not have to wait until spring for the next Growing Friends plant sale. The next plant sale will be on August 27th,  giving you time to prepare for the spring planting.

The most recent sale was in November 2019, nearly three years ago. However, the Growing Friends have not been idle : by the end of August, we will have a large number of plants ready for planting in early spring, as the ground starts to warm up. A complete list of plants available, and a description of each, is now available for download (PDF, 286KB).
