We have a vacancy for a visit in September folks. Anyone willing to give it a go?

Comment by Lissa on August 8, 2015 at 4:59

Thanks Gayle :)

Can I get you to send me some blurb about each garden please? And your preferred date/s.

I could use the previous wording for Elizabeths but I suspect it has changed a bit.

I can do the December one.  By then, I'll have a whole new back garden.  The retaining wall came down today. Lots more sunshine in.  Yet to see what difference it makes to the wind.I'll ask Elizabeth about September/November.

Hi all - Susanne has unfortunately had to cancel her visit in Sept due to family health reasons.

Would anyone else like to step into this spot? Pick your own date.

Comment by Lissa on August 5, 2015 at 5:59

Anyone interested in having a visit at their garden in November or December? I would be happy to hear from you.

Comment by Lissa on June 29, 2015 at 5:54

Looking to fill October, November and December folks.

Comment by Lissa on June 29, 2015 at 5:52

Thanks Susan :) Please check the Event listing and let me know if anything needs to be changed.

Hi Lissa,  as we discussed today, I'll be happy to take the August visit.  That same weekend will be fine.   Let people know that the October visit is now up for grabs.   Sorry Elaine's, I won't be able to make the July visit.

Comment by Lissa on June 27, 2015 at 17:12

The GV at Dianne' on 30th August has reluctantly been cancelled due to ill health.

Does anyone feel they can step in that month as replacement? You choose the date.

Comment by Lissa on June 22, 2015 at 6:37

Looking for gardens to visit in November and for the Christmas break up in December folks.

All you have to do is have an area where we can share produce and provide tea and coffee. Members bring the food.

You choose a date that suits you (either Saturday or Sunday).

Comment by Lissa on February 9, 2015 at 4:46

Calendar is filling fast folks.

If anyone has a desire to include their garden for a GV please choose a date, follow the instructions at the front of the group, and send the info to me please so I can create an Event listing.

Comment by Lissa on January 19, 2015 at 18:57

I've left the info about the festival - someone might like to go! I was getting a bit worried myself about the 2 hour drive each way.

Comment by Christine Cox on January 19, 2015 at 18:16
Thanks ;-)
Comment by Lissa on January 19, 2015 at 18:10

No worries Christine, will do.

Comment by Christine Cox on January 19, 2015 at 17:14
Hello Lissa I may have to cancel the garden visit for Blackbutt, it is a long drive and B&b's are expensive up there. I will try and make one for Brisbane another time. Can you delete it from the calendar of events. Thanks
Comment by Lissa on December 31, 2014 at 5:32

Hi Dave - did you get my messages? I have put up an Event listing HERE but need you to confirm the date please. Can you follow the link provided below and provide me with any more information you think people should know for the day. Thanks.

Comment by Lissa on December 23, 2014 at 5:16

Thank you Dave. I've gone with the 18th - let me know if that doesn't suit.

Can you read HERE please and send me a bit more information needed to create an Event listing.

Comment by Dave Riley on December 22, 2014 at 8:11

I'll volunteer my patch for April...You can select the day if you want it staggered. Place: Beachmere.

Comment by Lissa on November 29, 2014 at 17:09

The Blackbutt visit has been removed from Events by the organiser for the time being. It's a long way off and no doubt will reappear once details have been sorted out.

I would just google search B&B's Blackbutt Dianne, see what you come up with.

Comment by Dianne Caswell on November 29, 2014 at 13:49

I hope everyone doesn't mind but I have to have a driver to all events I attend so if I go to the GV's my husband Graham will have to be added to the attendees.

We would like to attend the Blackbutt visit, so does anyone know of any good B&B's near there. Good that it is planned for the Saturday as Graham needs to be back for a game of golf on the 13th, I do realize it is TBC.

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.
