Event Description

We have had some cancellations of attendees. If you would like to come ring me on 0414 445 581 for the addresses.

We have been invited to join our gardening cousins from the Dayboro & Surrounds Garden Group in beautiful Dayboro for a morning of food, chat, garden visit and BBQ. 



Children are welcome but must be supervised at all times. The second property has electric fences.


10.00: Morning Tea and visit at Lynn's garden. 

Can attendees bring Morning Tea food items please.

12.00: From there we will move on to Mary-Ann's place for a visit and BBQ lunch of sausages from the local Dayboro Butcher, home of the Sausage Man. 

Our hosts will be providing the BBQ lunch but I'm sure any salads etc would be appreciated.

Can anyone bring a folding table or two please?

13.00/14.00: Talk by Anne Gibson, The Micro Gardener. "Digging Deeper into Soil, Plant & Human Health

Anne will be discussing the link between soil, plant and human health and how to create healthy living soil in the garden and containers. She will cover soil properties, microorganisms, nutrients and what to look for in a good quality potting mix. Learn the benefits of making your own potting and seed raising mixes and how to use soil mixes in a variety of ways to raise seeds, propagate and in your garden.

14.00: A tour of Mary-Ann and Colins garden.

16.00: Early tea of leftovers for anyone so inclined.


Lynn and Wayne's place:

Quarter of an acre in suburban Dayboro with a beautiful old home, dogs and cats. Extensive vege beds, espaliered fruit trees, chickens. Slight slope to the block.

PARKING: Please carpool as much as possible. Please do not block neighbours driveways. Turnaround area at the end of Cruice Street. Parking also available in Delaney Rd.

From Mary-Ann:

Chairs would also be appreciated , yes salads, gluten free bread rolls or a plate of finger food sweets (slice biscuits etc) will also be appreciated.

We will provide BBQ food plates cutlery cups etc  tea coffee milk water some juices so if you would want any other drinks please feel free to BYO.  

Our place is less than 12 months old so still in development stages - if you are able please park on the road and walk up the hill - limited parking for the less able close to the house or do a drop off and have one member walk up.

Most of the walk around the garden can be accessed by a gentle slope and some stairs - just one area may challenge.

Will guarantee the view will enthrall you.

Unfortunately I'm not feeling well this morning due to developing migraine so another spot become available. I was really looking forward to seeing your acreage Mary-Ann in particular to get some ideas for my land. Hope everything goes well today and its not too hot.

Probably in the driveway Jan. You could double park for a few minutes if the situation allowed it when you get there.

Lissa, I'll be going by Mary-Ann's to drop off a few things before heading to Lynn & Wayne's.

If there is no place to park up close at Lynn's, I'll need to be able to temporarily stop and "unload all the goodies" out front before finding a parking spot elsewhere.

How can we best do that?

Does anyone want to meet up at my place at Strathpine for a 9am depart? I have room for 3 comfortably, 4 less comfortably.

Did anyone else really want to come? We have had a few people pull out. Please contact me for the address.

Thanks for the kind offers Jan and Mary-Ann but the problem goes beyond just sitting in a wheelchair or other type of chair. I can't wear any shoes, sandals or socks at all and I am not allowed to put my feet on the dirt or grass etc. If it gets worse the answer is amputation so you can see why I am so protective of my Big toe. Have a lovely time.

Any chance we can buy some sausages on the day from his shop Mary-Ann?
