Tu BiSh'vat Picnic - 9 Feb

Although the celebration of Tu BiSh’vat has a long and varied history, the theme most commonly ascribed to the holiday today is the environment. It is considered a festival of nature, full of wonder, joy, and thankfulness for creation in anticipation of the renewal of the natural world.

On Tu BiSh’vat we celebrate that life in joy and gladness.

This year we are particularly excited to be joining members Leslie and Katrina Heine at their home ‘Frogmore’ on February 9 for our first ever Tu BiSh’vat Picnic and Tree Planting. Frogmore, which is located on the Hamiliton Highway outside of Geelong, is the perfect venue for our Tu BiSh’vat celebration as it is not only of architectural, historical and archaeological significance to the State of Victoria but is also the site of Charles Wyatt’s celebrated Frogmore Nursery, one of the earliest nurseries in the country.
