Angela Speering

At the Australian Plants Society NSW AGM on 26 May, Angela Speering was awarded life membership of the Society.

Angela and her late husband, Geoff, joined the Society back in 1975. Angela and Geoff have been active contributors to the Newcastle Group over many years, as plant propagators, holders of committee positions, assisting in organising conferences and events and teaching propagation.

Angela leads the Wetlands nursery propagation and management team. The nursery provides valuable funds to the District Group and offers a wide range of plants to the wider Australian plant community, the Hunter Region Botanic Gardens and the Australian Flora Foundation.

Angela is a delight to be around – helpful and encouraging and always positive.

Thank you to Newcastle group for nominating Angela for life membership. The Society is delighted to award Angela life membership.
