Event Description

SUNDAY October 21st 10.00am TO 12.00pm

Address will be sent closer the date. The address is always sent to your email you signed up with, if it is different you need to change your profile

Dianne; We have been gardening here for 40 years, when we arrived here ready to garden we were confronted with clay, 100% clay except for some nasty builder's rubble left behind. Well we set to work and had many truck loads of the best Lantana Soil. Our soil is now beautiful, full of worms and just what a gardener wants to grow almost anything in.

Our garden is still undergoing a revamp of the Rose Garden along with the Woodland Garden getting an upgrade. We are also in the middle of preparing a new Fern Garden.

We have many Citrus Trees as well as many Fruit Trees. We have a Vegetable Garden, though we also grow Vegies in other parts of the garden. You will find many Flowering Plants to attract Bees into our space that we call Home. We grow many of our Citrus Trees and Herbs in Clay Pots and find this very successful for us.

We are having the Gardens fully irrigated with an automated system so we can go away and not have to worry about getting others to look after the garden. We have had to have paths ripped up and much vegetation disturbed, so please don't mind the look of some areas.

I have been making Cheese for more that 5 years now and love it, when I get the chance. I love to make Cheese with a Buddy so let me know if you would like a lesson from a non professional, no charge.

Well I hope this has given you an insight into our Gardening Life.

Children welcome but must be supervised by parents at all times.

Please bring a small plate of food or drink to share and any plants, produce or seed that you would like to share, swap or sell.

It is always a good idea to bring along a chair as we do sometimes have more visitors than chairs available at GV gardens.

RSVP required so that the address can be sent to you closer to the date. The email address you nominated when you joined will be used. Please update this if it has changed.

Late attendees welcome. Message Dianne or phone 0407691485 on the day for the address.


It's easy. Check HERE read the blurb and message Dianne

Hi Dianne,

Brenda and I will be eating at K and K's. 

Comment by Dianne Caswell yesterday

Christa, good thought but I think it best if I do the orders then I know how many people are coming for sure and can give numbers. If some people want to order when they get there it is their choice to do so. Can't wait to see what is in the desert cabinet this time!!!

Comment by Christa yesterday

Dianne, would you like us to order our main meal by surname - direct by phone, and just order dessert from the cabinet. 

Comment by Dianne Caswell yesterday

No, No, No, if you continue to scroll down the link/page after the All Day Breaky you will find pages and pages of Menu items. 

Comment by Elaine de Saxe yesterday

Am I right in assuming all they have is an All-Day Breakfast? Their 'news' links contain reviews of similarly-named places but not necessarily the one local to you Dianne.

Can you find out *exactly* what they will have available come this Sunday?

Comment by Dianne Caswell yesterday

I have just spoken to the Cafe' and they have suggested that as the kitchen will close at 2.00pm it would be a good idea if they have us pre-order from their Menu, here is a link   they close around 3.00pm. There will be desserts in the Cabinet for sale. 

They are proud of their Service and would like to be able to help us to have a lovely meal with good service on the day. The Cafe' is called K & K Coffee House, Austrian.

Comment by Elaine de Saxe yesterday

Should be 3 for the lunch Dianne.

Comment by Becky yesterday

Dianne, all being well with Paul, we will be at your GV x3 and join you after, at the cafe.

Comment by Elaine de Saxe yesterday
