Event Description

Visiting Susan (Cook) at Delaneys Creek this month.

From Susan:

Description: 2 acres -100 + edible fruit tree/shrubs or vines scattered throughout; vegie gardens, herbs; bamboo; plus native and exotic plants, small dam. 

Terrain: mainly flat, but a couple of hills and grassy areas can be slippery after heavy rain (unlikely in Sept). Dam is not fenced, 1 metre at deepest spot, so small children will need supervision.  

Parking:  Off road on large nature strip, can line up at front of property.

Directions:   20mins from Caboolture - take the D'Aguilar Hwy to D'Aguilar.  Turn left at the pub (Mount Mee Rd) follow for just over 1km; turn left at Delaney's Creek School Rd.  Follow this Road, past the school, for 800m (don't veer right at Chapel Rd near the school like on some Google maps) - we are no 81, 3rd last property on right - no fence, lots of plants.  Dead end Road.

Equipment:  We have 1 table and about 8 chairs, so may need more depending on how many can make the trip.

Address will be sent to those who RSVP closer to the date.
Children welcome but must be supervised by their parents.
Please bring a small plate of food / drink to share and any excess produce, seed, plants etc that you want to swap, giveaway or sell.
LUNCH VENUE: As Delaney's Creek is quite some way out, very close to Woodford, can I suggest a great little lunch venue to make the day a special day out:
"THE PLACE 2 B" cafe, gallery and gardens.

Sorry I couldn't make it I only late realised it was the Father's Day weekend. I know all would have had a great visit.

Would love to come Susan, unfortunately it is my son's birthday this weekend :(

Looking forward to seeing you all.  The yard is looking a little dry at the moment and not that much is fruiting - but you will get to see my challenges, trying to share the property with wildlife!

There'll be a few cameras there, Andy. We'll do our best to get there and I'll wield the little red Nikon.

Can someone please take photos?  I want to be able to update the header for the site - and I also REALLY want to see Susan's garden.

I've sent you a Personal Message Margaret. Let me know if you have any questions.

Aww damn.  My Rozie has friends coming over.  What?  Why did she double book?  Umm... some idiot forgot to tell her about the garden visit.  *double face palm*

Hey Margaret.  If you could bring a small plate of food (don't go overboard), your smiling disposition and a happy face that would more than cover it.
