"Hi Dianne; If it's closer for you, Kumbartcho (where I volunteer most Tuesdays, although possibly not the coming one!) has a fantastic bed of Cats' Whiskers growing there, and should have them available from the…"

"Hi Rob; Yes, I 'work' at Kumbartcho (volunteer work!) on Tuesdays - not actually in the nursery, but in the attached Environmental Education Centre there (15 Bunya Pine Court, Eatons Hill). I could send you the website link, but it will…"

"Our garden has just been dug, Lissa; so it's STARTED now, at least! ;) Have been learning plenty, though, and getting child 'hooked' (gradually!) :)"

"Re. mites - it really would be good to know if there was anything you could do to 'treat' the compost afterwards (it seems that the mound-compost would be a total waste if it had been 'turkeyed'...and let's face it, there…"

"Nope, no chickens, Andrew (no garden to speak of, actually - not YET, anyway!) ;) I wonder if there are any natural 'products' you could use to treat it for the lice before use, then, do you know?"

"Hi Andrew; Yes, I thought the point about the fences was a bit 'off', too (despite Prof. Jones being one of my former lecturers/fave bird people!). I volunteer at Kumbartcho, and there are a few around there - one roosts regularly in a…"

They're a good bunch of people on the site Lainie. All interested in a variety of home produced foods and drinks. Bound to be a lot of discussions going on that will interest you :)

Re the driving - I often carpool with the Elaines but there's room for one more. Just let me know if you would like to come to a GV and would like to catch a ride and we'll see what we can sort out.

Happy gardening
