We had so much fun last time, we're on again for the afternoon
Wednesday's Producers Market in Bellingen; 25th November, 2.30pm. Our

Numbers of course will have to be limited, so RSVP to grab a place, then
details and directions will be given to successful respondents. Please
keep in mind the concerns of current times for the good of all.
We are always on the lookout for people (like you) to put up their hand and offer to host a gathering.
Your garden does NOT have to be perfect, finished, or planned by an expert!
We are interested in all sorts of food-growing gardens in our area -
suburban backyards, market gardens, food forests, renters struggling
with pots, new landowners with plans & ideas.
A gathering usually lasts a few hours. You specify the day and time that
suits, and let us know if numbers have to be limited, parking options
and what the access is like. Everyone brings a plate and hopefully a mug
to limit your washing up and we supply most of the tea & coffee.
You may get some personalised gardening tips from the collective
experience of the group.
