Event Description

Growing your own sweet, juicy fruit will reward you with many kilos of fresh produce and represents a huge savings. You're invited to come along to the workshops at Mt Coot-tha to learn what fruits to grow for your garden, the best way to prepare your soils, growing organically, how to prune properly and there's a special citrus workshop too.
The workshops are all on Saturdays beginning Sat 16 October 10-1pm. You'll need to book a spot. Cost is a very reasonable $65 for lots of knowledge, a handbook and some takeaway organic goodies too.

Hi Ann Terrific It will be great to have you both along. I'd like to send you out some information on what to bring, where to meet etc. What is the best email for you?

Hi Linda,
Both Terry and myself WILL be attending the Fruit Tree workshop this Saturday.
You came to do a visit at my house in MT. OMMANEY??
Many thanks for the invite. I will pay in cash on the day, OK?
We mad, old buggers, ageing disgracefully are buying a one level 110 square house on 2.5 acres in Anstead!!! The kids will be totally flumoxed. We've gone huge (much bigger than Mt. Ommaney), tennis court, full size cold room and lots of other fandangled things.
