Spring Garden Tour – Limited places available!
This year we will be visiting the Mornington Botanical Rose Garden for morning tea and a guided tour, followed by a two-course lunch at The Grand Mornington. In the afternoon we will head to Dromana for a tour with the Head Gardeners of Heronswood House and Gardens.
The Spring Garden Tour includes morning tea, entry to each of the gardens, lunch, our regular bus raffles and a gift bag.
An incredible afternoon was had by all those who braved the cold weather and intermittent rain to attend the 2019 Spring Celebration. A special thank you to the Friends of Young Farmers, who once again worked hard to create a welcoming and family-friendly event.
A thank you also to the Young Farmers who helped in all aspects of the Spring Celebration.
Here’s hoping to better weather for the 2020 Spring Celebration!
