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 Dianne 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.

Dianne's mobile number 0407 691 485 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

Dianne

Just realized can't do GV or lunch on this day- spending the day kayaking in the Tinchi Tamba Wetlands.

Comment by Dave Riley on January 15, 2016 at 13:16

There is a walk on shore if the tide is in but bring shoes that you can wade in. Shell beds here and there.

Some mangrove mud close to sure...

On land there is usually a ford at the swamp outlet...

Low tide walk to the river mouth sounds good :)

Comment by Christa on January 15, 2016 at 9:19

Looks good, we would be interested in lunch as well at Beachmere. Don't like to be pushy.  It's been many years since we have been there.

Comment by Dave Riley on January 15, 2016 at 9:12

The new spot, the Beach Shak has a great menu with gluten free options. It's where my crowd eats and drinks when we do that outside the home. Limited space though.

The Club Beachmere(now run by the RSL) has a board menu.

The Fish.Chip place opposite the water tower has quality offerings.

In the shopping centre there is an Indian restaurant (just opened)  and bakery...and the Beachmere Tavern has very good meals, altho a little pricey. 

The School Community Garden project supplies the Beach Shak & Club Beachmere with fresh produce and herbs. (Not now as we are hiatus over the vac)...for that we get meal vouchers which are used for P&C fundraising.

Count me in for lunch

Comment by Lissa on January 15, 2016 at 5:45

I'll check out some of the venues for GF. Dave might even have some suggestions as he has Coeliacs in his family.

Comment by Elaine de Saxe on January 15, 2016 at 5:40

We could be persuaded ;-) Should be able to find GF, Beachmere is a very modern place these days.

Comment by Lissa on January 15, 2016 at 5:37

Beachmere has a lot to offer. Really quite a nice place to visit. Thanks for the map and info Dave. Hopefully some will make a day of it.

Anyone fancy meeting for lunch somewhere?
