Mosman Home Gardeners’ Society archives
During the Second World War the NSW government asked residents throughout the state to consider growing their own vegetables. Mosman Council supported this notion and sponsored a working group under the direction of its own head gardener to teach locals how to grow vegetables in their gardens.
Calling themselves The Mosman Agricultural Society, this group established the Mosman Home Gardeners’ Association after the war and went through several names changes over the decades finally becoming The Mosman Home Gardeners’ Society Inc.
The Society fosters an interest in gardens, with regular outings and meetings where members share their knowledge and until recently the Society’s Annual Spring Show was a popular event on the local social calendar.
Recognising its historical significance the Society has recently donated its archives to the Mosman Local Studies Collection. These archives include minute books, the Society’s newsletter, posters, photographs, show ribbons and medals.
Currently on view in the Library’s Mosman Room is a selection of beautifully designed medals presented to the Society and its members over the years.
