Our major fundraiser, Garden DesignFest, will next be held over the last two weekends in November 2020.  Planning for this event has already commenced.  As in previous years, the GDF Organizing Committee will comprise two members from each of the three Rotary clubs involved – Kew, Brighton North and Central Melbourne – plus a Chairman.

I have been selected as Chairman and am now seeking two club members to represent Central Melbourne. As you can see from the attached chart, the three Rotary clubs have different responsibilities. Ours, in blue, include the position of Secretary plus advertising, sponsorship and responsibility for some of the regional gardens.  Can you help? Over the next year, the workload will not be particularly onerous; things will crank up in the second half of 2020.  Both Rob Hines and Campbell Chambers are available to provide support based on their previous experience.

Central Melbourne needs to provide two committee members. If you have the time, interest and skill set, please let me know. I can promise you an interesting and rewarding 18 months.

Please contact me at if you need more information.
