June Newsletter & A Coming Event


Garden visit to Nick's garden in Repton

Our visit to Nick's Repton garden was blessed with lovely weather & enthusiastically attended. As with previous visits, Nick started off by sharing some wisdom on his verandah.

Everything has been growing well since our last lunch there and the impressive water storages are unsurprisingly full. Those who attended Nick's last tour, may remember his rampaging dragon fruit vines were fruitless. That has now changed in the the fruit forest.

Nick has been adding and removing, in response to the needs of his family and priorities of their favorites.

We also discussed fire safety and habitat values in the surrounding vegetation. After the tour we headed back to the verandah for lunch.
