Fellow Peter Thierfeldt opened his beautiful garden to help support a Dig It! 2015 project. As well as raising funds, the event helped highlight the work of the Society to a new audience.

In 2014 Fellow James Donaldson organised a meeting and dinner to bring Australian Fellows together. The event was enjoyed by all and now the plan is to meet annually thanks to James’s efforts.

In 2016, Fellow Hope Vere Anderson organised a dinner for some 25 Fellows in Atlanta at short notice and would like to make it a larger annual event in the USA to bring Fellows in America together.
