One Thousand Incredible Edible Gardens


One Thousand Incredible Edible Gardens

Nancy Kent and Pia Dowling have come together for past 18 months in collaboration to create a program that incorporates the best practice of urban food growing and herb growing that we have personally discovered in our thirty plus combined years experience. We want you to have access to organic super-foods in your own garden or balcony garden.

At our half day workshops which run throughout the year, Nancy will share with you just what you need to know to start your own garden, without being overwhelmed by too much information. Peer is now focusing her work in Sunshine Coast Area. The program will continue from April 2016 to August 2016. the second Saturday of every month. Please register interest and info will be sent to you - by Email:

Hello to new members to this group. Sorry I have been a bit slack lately. We are renovating the garden and do need some strong healthy helpers at present. Soil arrived from green fingers. WE are making a meeting place area with a fire pit in the centre. Shoveling soil and pushing wheelbarrows the most important job this next two weeks. please text me if interested. 0407 059 509 we are in Morningside

Welcome to George, Andrew and Dianna,

Sorry I am rather inactive. WE are very busy redesigning our garden and planning workshops. Hope you can all come to our place one day.

Looks like the problem is fixed Nancy.

Don't know what happened, but suddenly I've been approved and the group is no longer closed. Gremlins? Angels? Seems to be OK now Nancy.

Morning Nancy

I have gone into Options (above right) and changed a few settings. You can do this yourself at any time as you are the creator of the group.

If you want to attract members to the group it would be a good idea to put up some interesting information that will get peoples attention.  I have added "Add a Discussion" to help with this (under DISCUSSION FORUM just above this box).
