Event Description

RAIN HAIL OR SHINE THIS WILL GO AHEAD. BRING YOUR BROLLIES.

SATURDAY 24TH JANUARY 10AM TO 12.30PM

Beginning of a new year and you're all welcome to visit at Strathpine.

My philosophy is KISS. I follow natural gardening methods as far as possible, partly out of lack of time and being a lazy gardener, partly because I believe it's a good way to garden.

I have many different fruit trees and raised beds for veg. I'm gradually transforming my entire yard, back and front, into edibles or plants that support bees and other beneficial insects.

I keep honey bees (be aware if you have allergies to bee sting) and native stingless bees.

We may have a few members of another online gardening group, OMG (Oh My Goodness Organic Gardening), join us.

Easy street parking. Level block.

..............................................................................................................

EXTRA EXTRA!

I'VE BOUGHT A WHOLE BOX OF NICE TOMS FOR A PITTANCE AT MY FRUIT SHOP. NOT ORGANIC.

Jan Holley will "bring and demonstrate the NON-electric "Sauce Maker" that I use for processing tomatoes if people would like to see it in action. (I will probably NEVER buy bottled again)".

Jan would appreciate any donations of tomatoes on the day for her demo.

If you would like to take home some of the passata produced please bring a suitable container / zip lock bag etc.

...........................................................................................................

FUNDRAISER

I will have a 3kg jar of my honey for raffle. In aid of Cup From Above at Aspley - a cafe run by social worker Adam which provides support for local people down on their luck. Tickets $1 each and your support appreciated. Proceeds go towards costs of setting up a community garden at the back of the cafe for the education and use of the folk using the cafe.

Children welcome but must be supervised by their parents.

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

RSVP required for the address to be sent closer to the date to the email address you nominated when you joined.

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

Love to have attended but I am in Blackbutt that weekend

Did they tell you to slit the nut's skins? Similar to Chestnuts, they swell in the cooking process and can explode wasting the delicious contents.

I bought some Bunya Nuts from the folk at the PCYC garden the other day and will boil them for people to try.

The Wampi and Soursop are fruiting. With any luck you may get to try a bit of each.

I have dragon fruit cuttings to give away. Karla has very kindly given us some Surinam Spinach plants and cuttings which are all doing well. As usual we can take cuttings from my garden on the day.
