About TGF

The Forum exchanges information on plants and gardening, and members range  from the expert to the novice, so gardeners of all persuasions and talents are most welcome.  We love to share our knowledge and to get advice.   

We undertake regular field trips to gardens and farms throughout Tasmania, including members' own gardens, and we usually bring picnic lunches (ie we also love food).. 

Guest speakers are frequently arranged to address the monthly meetings, and the Forum organises two social events a year, one in July and the other in December.

If you are interested in gardening and would also like to meet members of your community then the Gardening Forum is a great place to be.
