Do you love gardening and want to connect with likeminded people? Then why not come along to Lithgow Library’s new gardening social group?

Every Monday Lithgow City Council’s very own Horticulturist – Chantelle Cambridge, will be hosting a morning tea for all local garden enthusiasts with a new topic every week. The first topic will be on indoor plant care. Who doesn’t have a sad plant in the corner they are unsure what to do with?

Tea, coffee and cake will be provided, and all attendees are welcome to bring along some cuttings to swap with others at the morning tea. Or just take a photo of your plants and let Chantelle work her magic.

Chantelle is employed by Lithgow City Council on the Parks and Garden team. She is very passionate about Gardening and yard maintenance with extensive knowledge about the local climate, frost tolerant plants, as well as indoor plant care and organic alternatives to pesticides and herbicides.

Chantelle has and continues to self-educate and has gained extensive knowledge from working alongside some of Australia’s top horticulturists including Better Homes and Gardens presenter Graham Ross.

Chantelle is a volunteer in several community groups as well as starting, Lithgow Garden Social Club which is going strong and has been a great benefit to the local

community. Gardening has greatly helped Chantelle through tough times in her life and she would love the opportunity to help others overcome anything they are going through, with the power of Gardening.  “If I can create a space for people to get out, make friends and help in anyway with mental health, my goals will have been achieved.”

Lithgow Library Garden Group will commence on Monday 24th October at 10am at the Lithgow Library. For more information contact the library on 6352 9100 or head to the library webpage
