Brisbane Organic Growers is co-coordinating a garden recovery program to assist our friends in Brisbane and Ipswich to re-establish their gardens following the recent devastating floods. We are encouraging all of our members to start growing seedlings, transplants and cuttings now. They should be grown in tubes, plastic pots or bags, polystyrene boxes or jiffy pots to be ready for distribution on 19 March 2011.
We would appreciate your club supporting us in this project. We are seeking donations of
- potted plants (vegetables, herbs, flowers, shrubs etc.
- cuttings fresh on the day (19 March)
- garden tools
- gardening books
Our members are current planting thousands of pots of seeds, which should be ready for distribution on Saturday 19 March.
Although planning is in the early stages, we envisage that on the day we will have several thousand plants to give away and will have information booths and demonstrations on post flood garden restoration, composting, worm farms, producing household vegetables in small containers etc. For further information contact Graeme Crombie 3298 6137 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
