A wonderful morning Christine and Glen! A bountiful garden with the background gurgle of the aquaponic pumps. Glen has been very busy creating variations on the aquaponic theme. Andrew will have photos and a report of the technical side of the setups. I can only comment on the welcoming hosts, their wonderful oasis in suburbia, the superb pizzas from their famous oven and the delightful company of keen gardeners.

It is always a delight and always a learning experience to see how others tackle their challenges ... every garden is different. Thank you so much Christine and Glen for your welcome and to the other BLFers for your company. A wonderful morning.

Great shots Andy :) You do Christine and Glen's garden justice. Glad to see the bread was perfect - Christine wouldn't let anyone touch it when we first arrived in case it was a dud lol.

Fantastic place was amazing and Christine and Glen were very nice folks and great hosts and enjoyed catching up with all my good friends so made it a wonderful day for all.
