THE Grampians Wildflower Show committee is seeking an injection of new blood to continue running the big Halls Gap event.
After celebrating the show's 75th anniversary in 2012, the committee decided to take a year off to consider the show's future.
Convener Margo Sietsma said the committee must decide whether or not to continue the show by the end of the year.
She said depleted committee numbers meant it was not viable to run the exhibition in 2013.
"We had a very successful show last year, but then we learnt several members wanted to retire and they were at an age where we couldn't say no," she said. "Another member moved away from the district and another was offered work in Hong Kong.
"Because the show is always of such a high standard, we decided to have a year off rather than run something second-rate."
The Grampians Wildflower Show celebrates the beauty and diversity of the Grampians National Park .
Mrs Sietsma said the show had adapted and evolved throughout the past 75 years.
"Early on we had mixed wildflowers and garden flowers, then the focus was just on wildflowers," she said.
"During the past few years we've had an emphasis on children and taking people out to show them the flowers in the wild.
"So it's changed quite a bit in its history it's time for some fresh ideas."
Mrs Sietsma said the committee welcomed new volunteers.
"They don't have to live in Halls Gap," she said.
"We've had helpers from Melbourne and Horsham in the past, so we will welcome helpers from anywhere."
She said expert plant knowledge was not a prerequisite.
"Volunteers can learn as they go," she said.
"What is important is they need to have a love for the environment."
Mrs Sietsma said planning was done in stages.
"We do a bit of planning early, then we have a break for a while because there's not much to do," she said.
"After that it's all hands on deck for the week before the show."
Mrs Sietsma said past and present committee members enjoyed their Grampians Wildflower Show experiences.
She said people could call her on 0429201139 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about the Grampians Wildflower Show committee.
She said committee members would attend the Pomonal Native Flower Show at the weekend.
"The Pomonal committee members have an area reserved for Grampians wildflowers," she said.
The Pomonal Native Flower Show will be in Pomonal Hall tomorrow and Sunday from 9.30am to 5pm.
