Event Description

Our October guest speaker is Rob Birse who has been a hands on Biodynamic gardener for many years. Rob would like to talk about what sets Biodynamics apart from Organics and Permaculture, and then go on to look at the particular qualities of the substances used in the preparations that form the basis of BD farming and gardening. Time permitting, he will touch on the practical application of the preparations.

Daniel, out of curiosity what time does it *actually* usually finish? Also what time does it open ... I work in Fortitude Valley and am thinking of coming straight from work rather than going home and coming back in... especially now I realise just how close the railway station is!

Also anyone from the area have any comment about whether it is safe to walk around in that suburb by myself at night... should I bring the mag lite torch ;)

I am a member but the meetings often end too late for me as I am up and off to work around 5am. I often go along to see folk before meeting and sometimes leave when I need to. I feel a little embarrassed leaving early but need to function next day. I plan to attend this week. Sounds like a good topic.

Hi there. I just checked BOGI's web site and attending the meeting is $2 for members and $4 for visitors and non-members.

Need to speak with them again, think it only costs a gold coin to attend meetings as a non member... and you can't sell anything at the meeetings from memory?

If I were on the same side of town, I'd be there. In years gone by when I was a member, the meetings were interesting and best of all, the members are so very helpful. The field trips were worth going on, as well. Bob Birse gave a fascinating talk at Caboolture Seed Savers a while back; the best attended and longest meeting we've had. So many questions ... so little time!

I recently joined BOGI (should have done it long ago) and am thinking of attending the meetings - if I can con Ash into babysitting :) Anyone else interested in coming along to one?
