Stirling and Hills Garden Club:
A group of garden enthusiasts who love to talk and hear about all things ‘gardening’.

Our members have a wealth of knowledge about gardening, the best plants to grow, when and how to plant and more. If you live in, or near, the Adelaide Hills come and join in the fun.

Greg Marlu - SA Biochar Works and AGM
Nestled in a picturesque valley near Macclesfield, Greg Marlu makes biochar from local timber waste for home gardeners.
Don't miss this fascinating talk.
Greg is passionate about his work, which he sees as an essential part of the rebalancing mankind needs to do to live sustainably. In his words; Biochar has the potential to change the world. That’s a big claim, but given the things research and history tell us about it, I believe it is justified.
Greg's talk will be followed by the AGM and election of the new committee.
Every month, members bring up to 3 flowers from their gardens to create a monthly showing of local garden diversity.
Show Benches, give a snapshot of what plants flower in hills gardens in each month.
