David Pepper's Winter Solstice celebration & food forest garden


Thursday June 21, 11am - 2pm

Remember to seek out the sign-in sheet on arrival.
Please bring a plate to contribute to our shared lunch
Bring seeds and excess plants to share if you have any.
Please arrive by 11am. A little garden tour of the maturing food forest will happen at some point during the day.
This is David Pepper's annual Winter Solstice celebration for seed savers AND the wider community. The early part of the day will be seed savers and as the day moves on, more people will arrive to celebrate. You are welcome to stay as long as you want - the celebrations often go on well into the night.

There will be a small ritual to honour Gaia and the winter solstice. You are welcome to join David in sacrificing your summer hat or similar into the fire.

Bring lunch to share, chair to sit on, mug for a cuppa to save the host washing up etc
Coming? RSVP to obtain the address and so we know who’s attending, even if you already know how to get there.
Organiser: Leela O'Callaghan gardenvisits@bellingenseedsavers.com

Afternoon tea at David's garden in the past

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.
