Posted on February 11, 2020 at 9:30 0 Comments

BEFORE - Garden has now been widened and…

Thank you Dianne.  I have rsvp’d to the garden visit onSunday, it think it is going to take me some time to learn the site, not really sure how these sites work.  I will keep at it and hopefully things will become more familiar.  regards Cheryl

Morning Dianne

Thank you for the welcome. I am interested in being involved with the garden visits but I won't be in a position to do so until April 2021 onwards. I have changed my avatar as you suggested. I am pleased to share whatever relevant knowledge I have with any member on the forum, however this forum appears to already have lots of people more knowledgeable than I am, the thing I like about this forum is there doesn't appear to be any egotists, as in, this is the only way to do something, which is a most pleasant change.

At 21:55 on July 14, 2020, Diana Yeo said…

Thanks Dianne

At 12:55 on May 8, 2020, Cindy P said…

Thanks Dianne.  I'll have a look around and see how I might fit in.  Looking forward to learning about growing food in Brisbane.
