Event Description

The April Seed Savers meeting is due to be held at the Jane Street Community Garden in West End. There are two shaded areas with seats. The Davies Park markets are open on Saturdays and they sell lots of food, drinks as well as veges.

I'll bring all the garden's seeds (currently nearly 250 different varieties) and a list of what we have available for sale, exchange or give aways. There are also heaps of plants which we can take cuttings from and are happy to do so.

I've attached a link to Google Maps, or you can find it by searching for "Jane Street Community Garden", which shows the entrance at approximately 103 Jane Street.

I'd love to see lots of people come and visit our special community garden. Come and see the wicking beds, our composting systems, hundreds of plants as well as our seeds.

Jacqui, thanks for hosting the garden visit. You were very welcoming and the morning tea was great. Good to have a look around the garden and gather different ideas.

Jacqui, that's very much for that - great to see everyone and to finally see the garden there; it's excellent!

Jacqui, I'm panicking! I think I left my camera at the garden... PLEASE say someone's picked it up, and in safe keeping...

Wonderful day Jacqui! Even the weather was co-operating (forecast showers, storm even). Great to see the Jane Street Garden and the BLF members and some new enthusiasts, too! We had a wonderful trip down in the train and the new Glider bus, we're bushed but exhilarated :-)

You are a gem Addy. If you could just leave them in one of the spare broccolli boxes (where all our other seedlings are, just behind where we were sitting), they will get cared for on Thursday. Appreciate you dropping them off, and help yourself to any of the other seedlings in the boxes, if there is something you want.

Jacqui, I have to go to the LOTE centre on Montague St to donate some books - haven't worked out w=hen yet, possible next Wed. I'll drop them in, if there's noone there, I'll put them somewhere visible.

Thanks Addy for your comments and for coming today. I think it was a great turnout and I really enjoyed seeing you all. We don't have this type of amaranth, so I'd love some, just not sure how to collect them, unless you're near West End.

What a great garden visit! Thanks so much Jacqui, only wish I lived closer to go more often ... and for the donation of all those seeds to Brisbane Seed Savers, I am sure we will find homes for them! If not on our own forum (here) then I will advertise on Backyard Poultry or Aussies Living Simply.

It was wonderful to see so many people come along, I had a great time catching up with you all - look forward to seeing you all next time! :)
