Event Description

I would like to invite any interested BLF'ers to an informal Christmas get together at my place at Strathpine on Sunday 9th December.

It will be undercover.

Come along and put some faces to those names you chat with online :D

Bring some food or drink to share (something from your own garden is always good for bragging rights but not a necessity) and also your own chair if you are into comfort.

If you have seeds, any excess plants or crop to share and swap please bring these also.

RSVP is appreciated and family are welcome - please advise numbers.

PLEASE NOTE: RSVP on this site is needed to receive the email with the full address closer to the date.

Wow, we could have made it an all day event there was so much animated conversation and sharing of ideas going on! Wonderful day. Thank you all for coming. It is always good to get together with like minded people isn't it!

Thank you all for bringing plants, seed and good food and in Jame's case, his Mulberry wine, to share. Thank you for bringing your inquisitive natures and sharing your knowledge with each other :)

James, don't forget to have a look at Andy's "Home Grown Liquors" group  - I think you and Andy would have a lot to talk about with your common interests.

If anyones cuttings or plants fail (easy in this heat) let me know and we'll organise some more.

We were walking and talking so much it was a bit hard to be both host and photographer but I managed to get a few shots off while people were eating and drinking:

Chris and I thoroughly enjoyed the day. Thanks heaps Lissa. Took the route

through Albany Ck. The Gap and Brookfield onto Mt Crosby and home, but stopped off at a friends at Brookfield and was offered some curry leaf root suckers. Have four potted now and will only require one, so three will be available in the future.
