Despite the challenging weather, we had an inspiring permaculture talk by Fleur from Book-a-Chook who discussed the importance of growing food in the suburbs, and how to get started. She also brought some of her chooks along and talked about how to keep chooks in the burbs. We had a harvest swap with some lovely lemons and herbs featuring, and a seedling sale with organic tomato, basil and beans snapped up by our members. We also had a delicious honey and honeycomb demonstration and tastings from a local Seddon producer.
We sold plenty of tickets for our raffle and Andrew from Kingsville was the lucky winner of the gardener’s basket. Between the seedling sale and the raffle we raised nearly $100 for future initiatives for our garden.
