Victorian Rose Society president Veronica O'Brien was on hand at the Clunes Farmers Market on Sunday morning to provide a pruning masterclass.  

The event came after the market recently elected its new board.  New chairman Chris Culvenor said while the committee was proud of what it had achieved in the first two years, they looked forward to boosting the profile of the event through seasonal activities.   

“I’m proud of what the market has achieved with Leanne Kamp as chair (and) the new committee aims to grow the market and promote it as a destination to benefit stallholders and the business around it,” Mr Culvenor said.  “The Clunes Farmers Market is a great meeting place for locals and we’re really pleased with the quality of stallholders.”  

The market is held on the second Sunday of every month.
