Event Description

Heirloom and Heritage Vegie Garden Workshop Series.

Mt Coot-tha. Do you long to taste vegies like our grandparents enjoyed? Would you like a garden of these hardy beauties yourself?

We’ll grow heirloom varieties, taste some of the best and learn how to save the seeds of these most delicious and hardy vegetables.   You’ll get to know the best for QLD and your garden while growing them here in the Botanic Gardens organic vegie patch. This is a real gem of a workshop series,  and the first time for the gardens, so book in witih me now.

Dates: Sunday 27 Feb, Sun 6 Mar and Sun 20 Mar

I would love to come but I am having an operation on my elbow on 17 February, would it be ok to attend if I am only one handed?

I would love to come, it sounds very interesting and right up my alley, however it is a tad expensive for me.  Do you ever do workshops for Brisbane Local Food members only, like the seed saving monthly meetings etc where the cost is not so high?  It would be great to have a workshop where we could all get together sometime.

Would love to come one day - but can't make it in the near future.

As a Coeliac I'm wondering if there would be anything gluten free in the morning teas Linda?

Yes the cost for the three in the series is $185 which includes an porganic morning tea each day and all notes, some organic products and a share of seeds as we go.
