AGM and Our Garden turns 1!!
Celebration of our 1st birthday combined with our 1st Annual General Meeting, took place on August 25, 2011 at Twig Cafe (who hosted the fantastic night as part of their garden sponsorship).
Our guest of honour, Monica Barone, CEO City of Sydney gave a thought provoking and inspiring speech on the link between Sustainable Sydney 2030 and our garden, including the importance of social capital. Joining Monica were other City of Sydney guests, who have been great supporters of our garden, including Ashley Heath, Project Manager Local Action Plans, Russ Grayson, Community Gardens and Landcare Volunteers Co-ordinator and Lynne Welch, ex-Project Manager Local Action Plans.
The AGM formalities included the President's Report, which highlight the number of achievements over the last 12 months, the adoption of our financial report (2010-2011) and the election of the 2011-2012 committee.
A great night ended with a stirring rendition of "happy birthday to us" and the cutting of the exquisitve cake.
