NEXT GATHERING:



 

Nick's Gardens in Repton

 

Sunday, October 8, from midday

Remember to seek out the sign-in sheet on arrival. 

Please bring a plate to contribute to our shared lunch at the beginning of the gathering.

Bring seeds and excess plants to share if you have any.


It’s a bonus double garden visit day. Nick Radford says:
"The first garden is 20 years old with permaculture planning on a flat, alluvial site. It includes an owner built passive solar house, vegies, fruit trees, clumping bamboo and rainforest restoration. The other garden is 6 years old, on a hilltop close by but very different – more windy, drier and with poorer soil. Climate change is making things tougher still, so I’ve learnt a lot about water conservation and regenerative gardening.  

The littoral rainforest in nearby Bongil Bongil National Park plays a big influence in my gardening approach. I will be walking there in the morning, leaving the house at 9.30 a.m. sharp. Anyone is welcome to join in if they can walk 5km at moderate pace."

 

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

Could we visit your garden?

 

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.

Send us a yes: gardenvisits@bellingenseedsavers.com
Bellingen Seed Savers Chatter is our Facebook group where we can talk and talk and talk on all things seed savers and edible gardening.
