This is the Garden Visit group event for this month.

Bellis: the garden of Jerry Coleby-Williams

Saturday 11 & Sunday 12 May 2013
(No bookings required)

A rare opportunity to visit the award-winning garden of ABC Gardening Australia presenter Jerry Coleby-Williams.

Jerry's great depth of knowledge and passion for sustainability are the key ingredients to this inspiring garden's success, with good soil preparation ensuring bounteous seasonal organic crops.

A Queensland Government experiment, the house is solar-powered, rainwater is harvested for drinking, and all waste water is recycled for food growing. Even the lawn is sustainable - it's mown using a solar-powered lawnmower!

Address: 56 Daisy St, Wynnum
Open: 10am-4.30pm. $8.00, no charge for children under 18

Kathryn Tranter lives nearby and has offered for members to drop in, have a cuppa & biccie and check out her garden.

The address has been sent out through the Garden Visit group email. You need to be a member to receive the email. If you haven't received the address please contact me by PM or phone 0414 445 581.

Vetiver grass helps to stabilise soil and protects it against erosion.  It can protect against pests and weeds. Vetiver is also used as animal feed. (Wiki.)

GrowVetiver is a plant nursery run by Dave & Keir Riley that harvests and grows Vetiver grass for local community applications and use. It is based in Beachmere, just north of Brisbane, Australia.
