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

Hi All, Graham says: Don't forget your name badges on Sunday.

 I will take you up on that offer. Would love some Thanks, Rob

I really need to free my growbed of Lebanese water cress. This plant propagates (and spreads) from runners and I believe many members have this one .... however, if anyone attending Susan's GV want's some (for growing or eating or both), I can get them to either Andy or maybe Cathie (I should ok you with that Cathie) before the GV, as I will not be there.

If there is no interest, the goats get to feast!

Just to let you know there will be a GV in June, Sophie is now having her GV in June and I will update you with the date as soon as we know for sure.

Or ... if the next time you make them, take a pic or three and write up the recipe in the Recipe section ...

Banana Spring Rolls sound wonderful. I do hope that there will be a photo and text report so we who cannot get there can learn too.

Sophie is having her GV a little later in the year and Susan has been good enough to take her date. Hope to see a good roll up to Susan's Garden, there is always something new and exciting in her garden a real example of how to grow many Food Plants on a smallish block.

This will be Sophie's first GV and I am sure a lot of our members are keen to seen her garden in the flesh (so to speak), we have watched from the beginning in photos and seen how her garden has blossomed. Thanks so much Sophie for the opportunity to visit.

Important note about adding photos:

Always add photos using the "From my computer" option, even if you are on a mobile phone or other device.
