HOW TO HOST A GARDEN VISIT

We're always looking for new gardens to visit. Don't be shy, it's easy and no one expects "perfection" (whatever that is) they just want somewhere to meet up and chat!

Please take a few moments to follow the link above and read the simple instructions in full.

Then contact Lissa with the information needed so I organise an Event Listing for your visit.

WHY WE LIKE TO HAVE GARDEN VISITS:

It's amazing what we can learn by visiting other peoples gardens. I know I pick up at least one good idea or plant each time.

You might be surprised at how keen other members are to visit your garden and see what you are growing, how your chooks / quails are kept, share their own excess produce, cuttings, seed and generally just have a good old chat with other like minded people.

Be brave!

The visits are informal and free. Choose to come to as many or few as you wish.

Lissa mobile number 0414 445 581 for emergencies.

ORGANISE YOUR OWN EVENTS!

Anyone is welcome to post and organise their own Events of any kind - in fact it is encouraged.

If you choose to do this please put your own name down as organiser, not mine. It can be very confusing for everyone if my name is on it and I know nothing about the Event.

Responsibility for running the event is up to the organiser.

Thank you

Lissa

Sounds exciting Nancy.

You contact me when you are ready for a visit.

Comment by Nancy Kent on Monday

Hi All, The Inspiration Garden is undergoing dramatic changes and will be available for a Garden Visit at some stage. NOT APRIL I am sorry. Please ask me again Lissa. WE are not sure how long we will take to complete our redesigning, we are creating a yarning circle and involving indigenous people from Australia and from other countries. If anyone sees this and is interested please contact me. Major brainstorming of ideas to set it off is happening soon. Or phone if you prefer. 0407 059 509

Hi all.

Thank you to Susan who has chosen a date in October :)

Are you thinking you might like to host a GV? Don't be shy! Please check the calendar HERE and let me know if you can fill some of the gaps.

Looking for a garden in April at the moment.

Found it Roger, thank you.

Will look into this a bit further this morning as I have some free time due to the neighbours not wanting me to start mowing at 7am on a Sunday ;) They're very selfish people my neighbours. Especially the ones with the baby.

Lissa, I have been trying to find the website for The Witjutigrub bushfoods nursery, but it appears to have closed down. The gentleman's name is Graeme White, and the ladies name is Veronica ? The Qld bushfoods Association has a website qldbushfood.org.au  with very little on, but some contact names, etc. The Witjutigrub bushfoods consultancy has a phone number 0419152695. Graeme White's phone number is 54723156 The address of where I visited with Logan Food gardeners is 264 Wallis Mountain Road Kenilworth. You may be able to get more info via facebook, I am not connected to facebook. Good luck!! PS I hope the above info is accurate!

Dave - looks like about 19 people coming not including yourself and Helen. Quite a roll up. See who's coming HERE at the event listing.

Low tide tomorrow at Beachmere is around 1.38PM -- so any would-be walkers ( heading south along the foreshore) be prepared with footwear that can also handle some wading.Northbound there is a sandy beach.

The best local track of wetland and mangrove/seagrass interface  is along Bayside Drive here. 

The sand banks and pools are glorious there and you may come upon Banjo Rays, Estuary Stingrays and usually migratory birds ..and always plenty of soldier crabs. The long narrow lake often carries flocks of Black Swans.

Just go to the end of the road and to the beach through the scrub.

From the Beach Shak  you can travel north along the sand and wonder how much the shoreline housing is worth.  Some eccentric sculptures  en route. 

The Beach Shak has a good menu and now has indoor aircon dining as well as pavement tables.

Excellent. Sounds like we have at least 7 for lunch.

We'll look at final numbers on the day and see if Beach Shak can accommodate us. Otherwise we'll head for the RSL. Perhaps a walk along the foreshore after? Nice and breezy down there.
