Hello garden lovelies,
Thursday 9 October, 4:30-6pm
Been a bit slim on the helpers last few seed packings, if you’re thinking about coming we’d love some extra help…. for the whole time or come for a bit (and take home some seeds). We have heaps of lovely heirloom varieties in so could be interesting learning also 🙂
Garden Planning Workshop @ the Food Co-op (flyer attached)
with Barbara from Backyard Food
Saturday 18 October, 10am-12pm
Barbara will be looking at the physical aspect of gardens and at soil health – two very important factors in growing good vegies.Please email us to reserve your place and get details – payment is required by Friday 10 October. We may accept people after this date, but we need numbers to go ahead, so if you’re interested please contact us asap – have had lots of interest but not many payments so far.
REGULAR WORKING BEES
SLC/ANU Organic Garden Working Bees
Saturday 10am-12pm, Tuesday 4-56m, Lennox Crossing
This lovely educational garden by the lake makes for a great place to spend an hour or two on a sunny Saturdaymorning. Check the facebook page for updates.
Next working bee will be this Saturday 18th October. Last Saturday didn’t have any plants to put in in the end, so it’ll be happening Saturday week. If you’re interested in input on what goes in or want to know more, send us an email and we’ll put you in touch with lovely coordinator Sara.
DB @ the Rooftop Garden
Food Co-op, 11am-1pm Saturdays, Kingsley St
The Rooftop Garden grows herbs and some vegies in the difficult micro-climate up there in the wind and heat. Great for sunny days, come help and take some produce home.
So there’s this great Pedal Powered Cinema we have access to at the co-op (some of you will be acquainted with it already), and of course there’s many, many wonderful garden and earth-health related films out there, which we’d love to show! If you’re an organising person who loves films and plants and has some time to invest, we want to hear from you! Can be short or long term, email us for details.
Shhhhh….. secret gardens
Our lovely blogger Saaro still needs a few more people to practice massage on for a course! Thanks to those who have already volunteered – if you’re interested send us an email and we’ll put you in touch.
