Event Description

SUNDAY 15TH JANUARY 9.30am TO 11.30am

ADDRESS HAS BEEN SENT TO ALL THOSE WHO HAVE RSVP'ed on Tuesday 10th January at 1.30pm. The address is always sent to your email you signed up with, if it is different you need to change your profile.

Jess has written a little about her Garden;

A little bit about my garden is this house was built a year ago in the new estate at Fitzgibbon Chase the property backs on to Bushland / Cabbage Tree Creek and I don't mind too much the Wild Weeds ways but they are persistent and ever present! There are 4 raised Garden Beds with only 3 full and two of them chockers with Tomatoes, various Herbs, Fig Plant and low lying Edible Plants. I have Dwarf Avocado in the third one and Dwarf Grafted Lemon Lime, I am a bit of a hit and miss Gardner really. A couple of plants such as Succulents, White Jasmine and Natives around. I am also happy to hear suggestions from experienced people, do some seed swapping and whatever else happens at the GV's, I do enjoy a nice cuppa :)

Children welcome but must be supervised by parents at all times.

Please bring a small plate of food or drink to share and any plants, produce or seed that you would like to share, swap or sell.

It is always a good idea to bring along a chair as we do sometimes have more visitors than chairs available at GV gardens.

RSVP required so that the address can be sent to you closer to the date. The email address you nominated when you joined will be used. Please update this if it has changed.

Late attendees welcome. Message Dianne or phone 0407691485 on the day for the address.


It's easy. Check HERE read the blurb and message Dianne

I am sorry Matthew but this garden visit was last year the calendar for 2018 is being put up today but we are severely lacking member to host.

Please if there are any members out there able to host this year we need your garden. It need not be a masterpiece of orderly fashion, you might have a Permaculture, Aquaculture, Orchard, Vegetable, Herb or a new garden under construction. We would love to visit and exchange ideas, not to mention have a lovely Morning Tea and our Swap Table is always popular. Please Message me if you would like to know more about having a visit.

Thanks to everyone who alerted me to my desire to time travel and attend this garden visit! In my eagerness to start the year off with a visit, I clicked on the calender link, not checking that it was fit 2017!!

Thanks for hosting the GV Jess.  It was also good to see the estate and the environmental measures they've included when there are people trying to get support for a protest against the Carseldine Campus development.

I have some mixed lettuce seedlings and a couple of excess Winged Bean seedlings to share. Along with some locally grown Okra.

Sorry to hear Craig isn't feeling well Cheryl. Hope he improves over the day.
