Growing local

For those who remember Mark Braz, he represented BLF at the Pine Rivers Show last weekend while I was having some medical stuff attended to. We had a banner and some posters up. Anyway, the bugger cleaned up in the fruit and veg section! Champion fruit and a bunch of other first, seconds and thirds. His daughter Olivia did really well too - and her awards aren't even amongst this bunch! (She took them to school today.)

Wow!! How awesome is that haul.  Have you got a photo of the winning goodies as well?

Great to see Olivia, following in your footsteps Mark, she appeared keen at the garden visits.  Well done with your awards.

Congrats on your haul.  Sounds like it was a fun time as well.

Thanks Dianne I pushed BLF this year hard, met some great gardeners that have a wealth of knowledge that are keen to look at BLF. MY new idea is that we can get more people doing  / showing /teaching /guiding /learning gardening skills by being out there.

Best regards Mark

Fabulous, he is a Champion Gardener I remember him winning prizes before this last lot. It is wonderful to see Olivia taking after her dad.
