The Glebe Garden Club (Ipswich) is an outreach ministry of the Glebe Road Uniting Church. Its primary role is that of a community garden club servicing the Ipswich community and surrounding areas, and is open for anyone in this community to join and become a member. It is to be noted that the club does not specialise in any particular area or plant species. It is a general garden club!
The optional membership cost for members is $10.00 single and $15.00 per couple. Our monthly club functions are held on the first Saturday of each month at a cost of $3.00 per person. These functions have a specialist guest speaker, member participation (Show and Tell), plant stall, free library, door prizes (free), Birthday Club and afternoon tea. If you are a gardener, or have an interest in plants or gardening, you are most welcome to join.

In addition to club functions, the Garden Club normally conducts two well organised bus trips each year to plant nurseries and other points of interest. Additionally, the Garden Club is involved with two major gardening projects that have proved extremely popular in the Ipswich community and surrounding areas, the Ipswich Home Gardner’s Expo and the Queens Park Glasshouse. These projects are, additionally, co-sponsored by the Ipswich City Council.
For over 90 years we have provided encouragement and a platform for local talent.
