Event Description

LAST MINUTE ATTENDEES - if you want to come and still haven't RSVP'd don't despair! Ring me and I'll give you the address: 0414 445 581 Lissa

RSVP's are required to receive the address. Remember, emails come to the email address you provided when you joined BLF NOT your inbox. Check your junk mail.

Please advise how many people you are bringing (RSVP just lists one).

We're in for a real treat this month, Lyn has invited us to her property at Stanmore (near Woodford).

Some might like to leave a little earlier and visit the incredible Caboolture Markets on the way. They run from dawn to noon but I've always found it best to get to these popular markets no later than 7/7.30 if I want to find a carpark easily.

The terrain at Lyn's is generally flat, no stairs but it can get boggy if it rains.

Lyn's words:

My garden is basically just as many edible plants as I can throw together with a mix of fruit trees, I've lost count but I have probably got 15 to 20 fruit trees. I also have a more formal vege garden. I have a few quail that I keep for eggs. I live on a rural property with cows and horse and a few random guinea fowl. We have a great big dam, great for swimming if anyone is adventurous enough If there is a lot of rain I will have to cancel, we get flooded in here.

Please bring a small plate of food to share for morning tea and any produce, plants or seeds you have spare for sharing or swapping.

Hats, sensible shoes of your choice. Children welcome but must be fully supervised by parents.

If you would like to attend or host a GV, please read IMPORTANT INFORMATION.

Hi Bronwyn

Thanks for adding me as a friend.  Hopefully we get to meet at Lyns garden day.  I have not been to any for some time, but with the new year I am wanting to link back in to all the things I enjoy in life.  Hopefully get to catch up with Lissa as well.

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.)

GrowVetiver 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.
