Lanyon Plant Fair 2016

Our Society is delighted to announce that we have entered an arrangement with ACT Museums and Galleries, an arm of the ACT Government, to manage the next Plant Fair at Lanyon. In brief, the Horticultural Society will be responsible for ticketing and for arranging the selection of stall holders and the special speakers for the event.

Our partners will open Lanyon homestead for the event, look after catering, run activities for children, and do lots of other little things to make this a great day out for gardeners and for their families.

We will update the website and our Facebook page regularly to let you know how things are going.  In the meantime you can see a flyer about the Plant Fair and a copy of the Press Release by the Minister for the Arts, Ms Joy Burch.
