Event Description

Our next Garden Event is Sunday. We have had a wonderful response to the wish list we put out a couple of weeks ago. Had to hire a ute to pick up the pavers that were donated and now we are all ready to launch into the Mandala garden. 7.5 metres of square foot gardening. We should be able to feed  quite a few neighbours with this amount of garden. So exciting to see it all progressing so quickly. Several volunteers are coming early on Sunday to get started before the sun gets too hot. I'll be up at 5am. Norm Todkill is giving a talk on mineralising the soil, increasing humus and promoting microbial activity. All welcome. It is a free talk. Bring a plate to share for lunch after the talk. At 10:45 Sun 6 Feb at118 Blackwood Avenue Morningside 38991575

He mentioned $50 each participant to me and that would include bits and pieces of mineral mixtures to try out in your own garden. I would be interested to give him feedback about this price. I know itwould be good value for money as the info he has is very necessary for us all to know about.

Interested in Norm's talk for sure, might be something we could do at one of the community gardens involved with BLF or even at someones house depending on the cost.

So sorry girls but we like the Inspiration Garden here in Morningside. If however you are interested to have Norm come and talk about Soil as he did with us I would say it is really worth it. Of the 20 volunteers who attended on Sunday for our third event most stayed adn enjoyed the afternoons program. The Educational for the Intellect, The physical exercise program and Meditation for teh Spiritual part of the program. For a Community Garden Norm is offering to do the session at almost free of charge, and with home garden he is offereing to do the session at a cost to each in attendance depending on the numbers. His thoughts after our session were that he would be happy to do a practical demo in someone's garden to enrich the soil included in the basic cost of his educational session. You need to speak with him about it if you are interested. Please reply if you are interested. The Women who ran the meditation offer many different kinds of programs to enhance our sensitivity to the plant and anilmal kingdom and get in touch with our inner selves. Very worthwhile. Her name is Grinee Lee and this is her email address for anyone interested in this.

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.)
