I have been very quiet on the Blog front, almost 2 years quiet, due to not wanting and not being allowed (OT Rules) in the Veg Patch until my garden path had been replaced (due to bulging tree roots), and I have been…

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

I was very surprised to log in and see such a lovely welcome. I think I have a lot to learn from this group and hope I can share my own tips and ideas along the way. We have just created our first wicking bed, made totally from salvaged and reclaimed materials (except the soil). We are raring to go. I look forward to contributing where I can.

Hi Dianne, 

Thank you for such a lovely welcome! I've only been living in Brisbane for a year now and am trying to connect with like minded people, basically 'us mad gardeners'. 

Regards,

Selina.

Would love to get to know some other like minded members, but may not be able to make any of the up coming garden visits that are listed. Hopefully my time will free up a bit more in a couple of months.

Good work Dianne, there's a lot that goes on behind the scenes, such as phone calls, organising GV's and just getting gardeners together.  Thanks for your efforts in gardening.

At 9:11 on March 27, 2019, Elaine de Saxe said…

Well done, Dianne - totally deserved :-)
