Morning L. Yandina Community Gardens are a seperate group to this one (I just post there workshop info). 

Linda Mahoney is the lady there you need to speak with - her number is in the info above - she may be able to give you contact details for other people.

You're quite a way off and this could be a problem getting guest speakers from the Sunshine Coast region but no harm in asking hey.

The spring "big day" sounds wonderful - make sure you post info in this site when you know a date etc so we can come.

Donna and Scarlett are the people to talk with if you have any technical problems using the site.

Thanks Lissa - will need to be patched through to "Jo" so as to arrange a possible similar deal to what you folk put together. We plan a "garden big day out" for next Spring, so will need to start moving now.

Jo was an amazing and entertaining presenter. Couldn't help but enjoy her workshop and come away with some great ideas,

The various Community Gardens would all benefit from sharing resources like guest speakers - no need for each one to reinvent the wheel :)

Why don't you contact the Yandina Community Gardens people L. and see if you can book/borrow their guest speakers?

We cannot be there - but we would like to know a whole bunch more, the same as with Michelle's community garden days. There is a strong need to get our local area here, up to speed with the wider community in relation to "new" plants and "new" styles of food preparation.

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.
