"Only just saw your reply Vivienne. Sorry about that. I might be biased but the folks here are quite a lovely bunch. It's well worth coming along to a garden visit to meet a few of them. Jeez, it's well worth going…"
" Thank you Christa for your kind welcome. Yes the body is a little slower than it used to be, but the mind has accumulated a lot more wisdom with age!!
I look forward to sharing and learning from the group."
"Welcome Vivienne, I sincerely hope you are able to come and enjoy our garden events. Some of us employ permaculture practices and some organic growers and some grow just what they need to supplement their daily food needs. …"
" Hi Dianne, thank you very much for the warm welcome, I look forward to meeting the members. Garden visits look good I hope I can join you in February. A busy time in the garden at present after great rain."

Retired university lecturer, research scientist and environmental engineer.
Set up a business growing organic veges and fish, which I then supplied to restaurants and private customers.
I am a qualified permaculture designer.
I am currently involved with the following community gardens and groups:
I live in a retirement village which has a community garden. I grow veges and fruit in this garden and share the produce with other residents.
I am interested in:
Growing all sorts of food, particularly the lesser known varieties.
Turning "waste" materials into food, and the biological recycling of all organic waste products.
Having a disease free old age.
Energy healing of people and the earth.
I can offer (you can't offer too much or too little - we don't mind)
Information, Products and/or Services, Training and Consultancy, Gardening Help
Only just saw your reply Vivienne. Sorry about that. I might be biased but the folks here are quite a lovely bunch. It's well worth coming along to a garden visit to meet a few of them. Jeez, it's well worth going to a garden visit just to eat the food! LOL.
Welcome Vivienne, I sincerely hope you are able to come and enjoy our garden events. Some of us employ permaculture practices and some organic growers and some grow just what they need to supplement their daily food needs.
We love growing fruit trees and have a collection of common and rare fruit trees and vines. Maybe we are getting a bit physically aged but our minds are still young.
You would be a great asset to our group with your knowledge of plants and your ability to turn "waste materials"into food and more.
I am sure you would enjoy visiting our member’s gardens. We have members who grow many different kinds of Gardens, Permaculture, Aquaculture, Wicking Beds, Traditional and many more. The GV's are usually held once a month. At the GV's we share cuttings, plants, produce, seeds, knowledge as well as a good chat and a lovely Homemade Morning Teas.
We have many subjects of interest, if you have any questions I am sure we would have a member or site available to answer that question. If you feel you are particularly adept in a field you may like to add a new Group to our List or perhaps do a talk or demonstration at one of our GV. If a yes for the GV you might like to friend me and we can see what we can do. We are always looking for new ideas.
You may like to go into your page and change the Pea Leaf Avatar for one of your own, it makes it a little more personal and as soon as we see your own Avatar we know who it is. Please enjoy BLF…..
