Event Description


Come visit our very own Elaine's in their Wicking Paradise.

Elaine will hold two visits close together as usual - one on Friday 8th and the other Sunday 10th.

From Elaine:

On-street parking. Short uphill walk to back yard which is flat. No fences in the front part of the garden. A couple of spare folding chairs will be handy. 

If ever a garden can be said to be 'finished' ours is close to that. In that we've upwards of 2 dozen wicking beds or bins and that's about as many as we can fill. So far most plants are doing well. Some are around 5 years in the bins and have fruited each year for us. Others are just hitting their straps and coming into fruit for the first time.

If you're interested in wicking beds, we have a number of different styles and are happy to discuss wicking beds and their variants. We do have some plants in the ground so it is not all wicking beds! The Hugelkultur bed should be close to being used by GV time.

We're happy to have BLFers along on the Friday and/or the Sunday.

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.

Thank You so much Elaines for hosting this GV.


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

I know :(

I react badly to passion fruit though Dianne. Could have admired from a distance only.

I don't often get the chance to catch up with my 6yr old grandson though and have been invited to go out with them this day. Can't pass that up.

And I was making a Gluten Free, Vanilla Slice for you.

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.
