Following the March workshop to make and paint hanging baskets, Fiona Kooka is enthusiastic about Garden Club in Mossman Gorge.

‘Garden Club is a great opportunity to bring people together to learn about gardening. There were a lot of ladies at the Garden Club and hopefully even more people will come next time.’

Straight after the workshop, the ladies were out tending to their plants and adding to their vegetable gardens.

Fiona is just one example of a growing sense of pride and passion for gardening in Mossman Gorge as people spend more time in their backyards.

Having worked at the BBN Nursery, Fiona is an experienced gardener.

She will share her horticulture knowledge with other Garden Club members at a workshop next quarter.
