The Western Australia Branch of the MGS
The aim of our newly-formed branch is to promote mediterranean gardening as we live in a truly mediterranean climate. We shall do this by promoting the society and its aims, encouraging new members, and having a programme of activities so MGS members can meet, socialise and learn.
We are starting small, so three or four events per year is our initial aim and this could progress to bimonthly. Events will be on a Sunday. We shall also publish four newsletters each year with contributions welcome.
New and prospective members may contact Branch Head Margot Tobin by email.

Biography of Margot Tobin
Branch Head Margot lives and gardens in Fremantle on limestone soil. Salt-laden winds blow for nine months of the year. She has been a member of the MGS since 2012 and finds the travel to its meetings stimulating and fun. She initially attended the AGM in Adelaide in 2012, then Menton in 2014 and Southern California in 2017. Gardening is her passion and green is her favourite colour.
