It was lovely to be part of the Forbes Riverside Community Garden Row of Crows competition on the weekend.
This event was a wonderful initiative of the Community Garden and an opportunity to bring people into the garden space that might otherwise have not felt the need to check it out.
I know….not all of us are born with creative talents or vision, but I gave it a shot and so did many other community organisations, individuals and schools. One of the best parts of being involved in these events is the opportunity to catch up with people and I am always grateful for that opportunity!
We are currently plotting our calendar for 2020 activities and I hope that I once again have the opportunity to be part of the wonderful community events that I have participated in over the past twelve months in Forbes.
I am happy to speak at upcoming meetings etc in 2020, so please feel free to drop me a line and book in the date. It is such a pleasure to meet new people in the community and look at ways that we can potentially be working together.
As in 2019, our monthly meetings will be held alternatively between Parkes and Forbes Shires and we are always happy for visitors to join us.
With the continuing dry conditions, Landcare realise the importance of supporting our communities even if that is as simple as hosting or participating in and event and just catching up with people.
Along with our Rural Women’s Gathering Committee, we have commenced planning for our event coming up between 23 and 25 October 2020 in Forbes.
We are thrilled to have the support of the Forbes Business Chamber who recently held the successful Taste on Templar event which will be the style of our welcome dinner for the Gathering.
We are aiming to host up to 400 women (and their partners) during the Gathering, offering the highest country hospitality possible and showcasing the wonderful things on offer in the Forbes Shire.
Now is your chance to invite your friends and plan for a catch up and learning experience in October. Pop it in that Christmas card, mention it in those Christmas catch ups and encourage women to join us and share the experience. A partner’s program is included.
