Discussion Group
We meet at the Kevin Heinz Garden Centre, 39 Wetherby Rd, Doncaster, at 8 pm on the 3rd Wednesday of most months. The discussion group meets most months to talk bromeliads in an informal setting. The meeting is not of a technical nature. However arrangements are changed at the last minute, so if you are not on the discussion group mail out, please call Chris (9568 8856) or Len (9569 7936) to check that arrangements are still current if you plan to attend.
All members are very welcome - don’t be put off thinking it will be technical.
