A beautiful garden photo sent in from Karin from the Ocean Shores & District Garden Club.

With many clubs and groups finding ways to get together online the Ocean Shores & District Garden Club is sharing the joy with photos.

The garden club encompasses Ocean Shores, Mullumbimby, The Pocket and Brunswick Heads and club Margaret Keating said club member Sue had an idea to keep everyone connected in these limited social times.

‘Sue suggested I ask the members to email a photo of their garden or a special plant.

‘We are up to over 20 days sharing now and still receiving photos every day.

‘Sometimes we post twice a day if we have an excess of photos.

Ocean Shores & District Garden Club member Doug sent in this photo.

Ms Keating says that feedback and participation has been astounding.

Pre COVID-19, the group met at The Hub Church in Ocean Shores every third Monday with a friendship day or outing on fourth Monday of the month.

Though things are a bit different these days, the club is still welcoming new members.

For more information on how to join the club, phone 0412 246 310 or email Margaret Keating at [email protected].
