The City of Faifield Garden Club was founded in November 1972 by a handful of garden enthusiasts from the local community who felt that Fairfield should have its own garden Club. From those early days to now, the Garden Club has always shared in the wealth of friendship, of garden expertise and community spirit. In 1991 we moved into the Commercial Hall, Fairfield Showground.
In June 2005 this hall was destroyed by fire and we were invited to use the Big Shed in the Fairfield City Museum & Gallery.
Our Annual Diary consists of a monthly meeting, each with a display of Plants, Flowers, Fruit and Vegetables and occasionally, a Guest Speaker
A Spring Show is sponsored by Fairfield City Council and is held in conjunction with the Fairfield Annual Show, and is open to all. We receive support for Trophies and Prize Money for the Spring Show from our local Clubs and Community, to whom we are very grateful. We also hold an Annual Spring Garden Competition, which is opened to all residents of the Fairfield District. This is also sponsored by the City of Fairfield Council.
During the year we have a local Garden Walkabout, Bus Trips, Street Stalls and other interesting activities.
Points are awarded each month, and at the end of the year, the person with the most points wins the Point Score Shield, has their name engraved on it, and keeps it for one year. We also have a Junior Shield.
Our Club is for all ages, including children.
Membership is welcomed and open to all.
