It was a great morning, Gail and was there too which was a lovely surprise, always nice to have a friendly BLF member to share with. I learnt many new tips and of some new plants to source to add depth and complexity to a simple vietmese soup. The morning tea was very good. Then to cap it off we were all given a voucher to choose five free plants from the Nursery.
And...there is more.... A voucher for up to two free tickets to a South Pine river walk and Bush Tucker morning tea.
I dropped into the nursery and it was just too difficult to choose 5 plants so I came home with 11.
All have been on my when I see that I will buy it list so I was very happy I went.
Can heartily recommend.

VETIVER COMMUNITY PROJECT

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.)

The Vetiver Community Project 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.
