That's dreadful news Scarlett (haha my spelling accidentally put dreadflu). As much as I would love to have you, unfortunately I am high risk so better not take any chances. I hope you and your family have a speedy recovery!

now we're not going to noosa (arg!) but we still can't come because we probably have swine flu (they're not swabbing unless you're in a bad way, fingers crossed we all seem OK so far)

I’ve got a suggestion to make follow on from Donna’s Green Harvest post, but didn’t want to add confusion to the already big thread and not too sure where to post, I decided to post it here since it’s in relation to Seed savers meetings/Garden visits.

As our group’s getting bigger it seems we can’t really do what we did in the first few meetings where we asked everyone whether they want a particular seeds, and sometimes there are offers of excess produce or seeds posted on BLF. I think I saw someone offered Jicama seeds, and I couldn’t find the post anymore when I decided to give it a try^^

Maybe we could post excess produce, seeds saved and available to share (including other planting materials e.g. cuttings, tubers) in the upcoming meeting event, and also people can post wanted message in here as well where people who can share could these can respond. These then can be place into a sharing box or table at the meeting and whoever’s interested can just take them on the day. If there are any leftovers on the day, the garden visit host could bring them along to the next meeting/visit they are going to if they choose to. What does everyone think? This process can be refined, it’s just what I can think of now… just a suggestion…
