are not organising any garden visits during the current Covid 19
restrictions. We encourage you to visit your own garden as often as you
can, for as long as you like. It doesn't matter if it is on acreage or
some flowers / herbs on the window sill.
Coming? no need to RSVP.
Organiser: Why you, of course.
Without any organised garden visits, I am looking for material for the
next newsletter. If you have anything growing on in your garden that you
are happy to share, please let me know. A paragraph or two and a couple
of photos will really help me out in producing a newsletter to share
with all of our members.
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.
