We all enjoyed Andy's Beer and Liqueur Demonstration last year (some of us a bit too much). I am sure his Sausages will prove a winner as well. 

GV spiel:

Agenda for

Andy and His Rozie’s Garden Visit:  18 November 2018

10.00 – 10.30:  Arrive, meet and introduce yourselves. Someone remind Andy to make sure there is tea, coffee and cold water!  (He’ll be all nervous and silly on the day.)

 10.30 – 11.00/15-ish:  Garden tour.  Somebody take photos to share on the web site!

 11.15-ish - 11.45:  Eat, drink, chat and be merry.  

 11.45 – 12.15:  FREE LESSON:  how to make home made sausages. (No expertise or brains required – just ask Andy!)

What if it rains?!

Don't worry about it!  We can move indoors and enjoy the food.  Andy will do a few impromptu demonstrations about how a still works, how a hot smoker works, how to make ricotta cheese etc.  He can't make sausages in skins (the sausage stuffer/mincer only works outside) but he can do a few varieties of skinless snags!  He may also have several home vintages to sample. 


Andy and Rozie's yard is small and flat, although the front driveway has a slight incline (which should be easily managed).  There is ample seating and the yard is fully fenced.


Guard dogs Bobbie Cumberland and Benny Beaterbum will bid you with a very loud welcome.  Please try not to frighten the little fellows too much or let them out. Whilst Bobbie will probably run and hide, Benny will attempt to lick you to death.  

Take care around the attack chooks. They aren't house trained.  Hopefully, the quails will do their best to be cute for you.   

You’ll have trouble seeing in the aquaponics tank.  There’s only 5 fish left and the mint is hanging everywhere.  Try not to put your fingers in the aquaponics tank. The lads tend to be somewhat fiesty in summer - unless they too get eaten, in which case I will only have tiny fingerlings in the tank. 

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

Good Morning, The address for Andy's GV has been sent on Friday at 8.12am. Please email me 0407691485 if you do not receive this. Should be an entertaining and interesting learning experience. Remember that Andy's brew is pretty potent so don't drink to much.  See you then..  Cheers.. Dianne

I have edited the event to describe alternative fantastic activities should the weather turn bad.  All good!

Andy and Rozie, we have 6 in our family visiting for GV.  Thought it was best to give a heads up.

Next Sunday 18th will be Andy and Rozie's GV. One not to be missed, Andy is always very generous with his knowledge, we remember with (that warm feeling) the GV with Andy showing us how he makes his many kind of spirits.

This is the time now that I am preparing the GV Calendar for 2019 I am looking for Members to host their own GV. All you need is a Garden, it can be as small as a Balcony or as big as a Farm. It can be a New Garden you want help to establish or as big as a Productive Orchard or An Example of a Fully Sustainable Garden. In other words your garden can be neither to little or big. 

It would be lovely to visit the Gardens of some of our New Members as well as old, so if you would like to be one of our GV Hosts for 2019 please email me through the BLF Site or phone me on 0407691485. Cheers,,, Dianne
