Saturday at the Bellingen Community Gardens & Other News

It sure was a warm day in Bellingen, but the well established gardens afforded us lots of shade. The gardens are really looking lush and abundant.
We had lunch and a catch up before Alison took us on a tour of the newly revamped Community Gardens. 
She outlined the new works and ambitions, projects and planned workshops for garden participants, and the focus on community resilience.

Recently, the property owner notified them of intentions to sell on the open market, we might need to find a rich benefactor to assure the garden's future in that location!
Thanks Alison for a lively and inspiring talk and walk.

Diary Dates

Garden visit to Lightstream Lowana

Sunday 21st of November 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Judy and Andrew are natural therapists with specialties in meditation, massage and herbalism. They have been on their MO for a couple of decades, running a successful airbnb as well as improving and adding to the initial buildings and gardens. Now they are mostly retired and throwing themselves fully into the productive gardens.
We're invited for a morning tour of their netted chook/orchard and vegie tunnels, with lunch to follow.

They also have an amazing waterhole at the bottom of property, so for those who have time to linger, a spot of natural bushwalking and a quick dip might also be on the cards - bring your cozzie!

If you are coming down with something, please do not attend the garden tour.

Coming? please click here to RSVP, to obtain the address and so we know who’s attending. Please RSVP even if you already know how to get there.
