Give away concrete laundry tubs

Would anyone like a set of concrete laundry tubs? They have been used for a worm farm a la Linda Woodrow and are probably not much use for doing the washing! If you take them away, you can have the worms that are in them as well. They are very heavy, and you'll need two strong men and a trolley to shift them, as my husband and I won't be able to help.If you're interested, send me a friend request and I'll get back to you.See More

Profile Information

About me:
I live on a 900sq m block. The house is biggish, as we had a big family, most of whom have left home. The gardens were more or less tacked on by the previous owners after the house and various landscaping features were finished, so no chance to do the permaculture thing, but gradually a food garden is taking shape. My background is in revegetation, volunteer management, and growing and selling local native plants, but I am a total convert to the idea of producing as much of our own food as possible. Fruit trees - in ground and in pots - are a particular enthusiasm, and I like to preserve my own and purchased produce.
I am currently involved with the following community gardens and groups:
Rode-Chermside garden club
I am interested in:
Permaculture, growing my own food, preserving the produce. I would like to see other peoples' gardens, and
join in discussions to learn as much as possible about the ins and outs of growing food. Happy to share bits and pieces of whatever I've got growing, and whatever knowledge I have accumulated over the years.
I can offer (you can't offer too much or too little - we don't mind)
Community Involvement
What I am looking for:
Information, Community Involvement
Location

This is Stumpy - one of a few Stumpys who live in my garden. The ONLY critter I don't mind eating my strawberries.

I thought it would be good, after the info on pesticides, to see natural pest control in action: ladybirds breeding up on…
