Event Description

SUNDAY MAY 7th 10.00am TO 12.00pm

Susan is having her GV to replace Sophie's - Sophie will be having hers a little later.

Well you know how much we love Susan's Spring Rolls  well during her GV there will be a Demonstration on just how to Wrap, Fold and Cook Banana Springs Rolls. 

On street parking is available.  Ground is mostly flat but there are uneven pavers and things which people might trip over.  Children welcome but we have a boisterous dog.  Heaps of fruit trees, wicking beds, bees and chooks to see all on a 580 sq m block of land.  Hopefully the vegie patch will be thriving in May and there will be lots to see.


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.


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

Also I have a mixed tray of miscellaneous seedlings that I purchased for the community garden to use and they have been very frugal with what they decided to use. I would love to cover my costs and wonder if anyone would like to pick up some cool weather seedlings at $.20 a plant? Much cheaper than Bunnings. I have various lettuces, sugarloaf cabbage, tatsoi, bok choy, Silver beet and rainbow Chard. Will bring them all tomorrow in case anyone is interested.

Hi garden visit folk..... I wonder if anyone has some climbing bean seeds that are suitable for cool weather planting (ie not snake beans) that they would be willing to share with my community garden? I have used all mine up but we need to plant some on Tuesday at work. Of course I can run to Bunnings in the worst case scenario but I love to use saved seeds.

Apologies, but I now have a conflict with a work related outing on Sunday and cannot attend. Have fun all!

Hi Chris, I can bring Marguerite Sp. grows less quickly than Hawaiian SP but tubers are tasty enough

I believe it's grown mainly as an ornamental but it is edible.

Comment by Elaine de Saxe on May 5, 2017 at 14:54

Isn't Marguerite just an ornamental without any tubers? It's the lime-coloured leaves Jerry Coleby-Williams was growing in his yard, afaik.

There is a non-running Sweet Potato but I don't have one currently. They are not so easy to find, either.

Does anyone going have marguerite sweet potato? I want to try it because it's more compact than other sweet potatoes.

Rob, I'll give the Lebanese water cress a go.
