Event Description

SUNDAY 23rd FEBRUARY 2020 - 9.30am TO 11.30pm

The address is always sent to your email you signed up with, if it is different you need to change it in your profile.

Valerie has written a little about her Garden;

We've lived in our house for over 10 years and every year the garden goes from strength to strength. We have a mix of wicking boxes and ground garden. We grow a few trees in pots and in the grounds.  

We host native bees and lots of other bug species as well as worms. 

On Sunday 23 February, we will be making ladybird habitats. All supplies provided for a gold coin donation to go towards maintaining our website. 

  

The whole garden in on flat ground, though not all is accessible to wheelchairs.  

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.

WANT TO HOST A GV OF YOUR OWN?

Vetiver grass helps to stabilise soil and protects it against erosion.  It can protect against pests and weeds. Vetiver is also used as animal feed. (Wiki.)

The Vetiver Community Project is a plant nursery run by Dave & Keir Riley that harvests and grows Vetiver grass for local community applications and use. It is based in Beachmere, just north of Brisbane, Australia.
