Border Landcare Organic Group   (BLOG)

The Border Landcare Organic Group was formed during the winter of 2002.
Every month members meet either at the home of one of the members for activities such as a farm walk, group discussions, interesting speakers, working bees, or we may go on a bus trip to places further afield.
These are generally held on the fourth Saturday of the month, and start at 10am EST.
Talk or activity starts at 11am sharp with lunch about 12.30pm.
Bring lunch to share, cup/glass/plates etc and a seat.
Don’t forget your hat!  If unsure of directions, ring one of the contacts listed below.

Border Landcare Organic Group –Activity Guide for 2019

Can you help?
If you are wondering why we have not sent an Activities Guide for 2019 it’s because the Steering Committee is having quite a difficult time planning our program for 2019.The usually generous response to requests for a visit from BLOG is of course impacted by the current dire situation for many producers- bushfires and the drought have resulted in several planned outings for the year being cancelled or postponed indefinitely. So, we would welcome your ideas for outings in the Stanthorpe to Tenterfield area. You can let us know at Glenrock Gardens or send an email blog@granitenet.com.au
Member input is always appreciated.

The 10-acre gardens were voted the Best Australian Garden by the viewers and readers of Better Homes and Gardens in 2006.They are incorporated within a working farm and although the gardens are very much designed in the English- style with dry stone rock walls throughout, they are also surrounded and interspersed with iconic Australian bushland.

Visitors are welcome.The usual entry fee to Glenrock Gardens  is $10 per person- BLOG will pay $5 of this cost for members.
There is plenty of shade but no cover. If a miracle occurs and it pours rain, we will notify cancellation by email 24 hours beforehand.
