So we had the last meeting for the term this afternoon at 1pm where we basically reviewed the society’s activities so far. Overall was a good first half, especially for  a society trying to get off the ground and get established. We ran through some ideas for after Christmas, and we seem to have some very good speakers lined up. One of the events planned is a live drawing with Susan Sex, whom I’ve blogged about before. She’ll sit down with us and go from plant to canvas in an hour. We also tentatively mentioned the Eden Project again. Because we’re a provisionally society, we don’t get a grant for Travel, so the trip was off the cards. Until now.

According to the CSC, we can use use money from another grant for this. This is definitely good news, and we’re  gonna start planning this. Final bit of news is the Earth Ball! In conjunction with the Geographical Society, Joly Society, Environmental Society and Zoological Society, we’re going ahead with the Earth Ball. The date is set for the 19th of February and will take place at the Guinness Storehouse. We’re still ironing out the ticket prizes, DJs, bands and a possible céilí! So keep an eye out for a poster goin up soon!

There won’t be any Botanical Society events until the New Year, but I’ll try and keep the blog updated with any haps in the plant world.
