Bees, Seeds and Swaps...Fill Your Diary!

Spring has arrived and the Garden is alive. So much going on. And the humans are active too! If you thought you missed our monthly Working Bee, have no fear. It was simply postponed due to Fathers Day. Please come and join us this Sunday the 13th from 10-3pm to do some compost shifting, seedling nurturing and food sharing.

The Garden is also very excited about the fact that Jude and Michel Fanton, founders of the Seed Savers Network are visiting Wollongong thanks to Sustainable Illawara. To celebrate their visit, a screening of the film "Our Seeds: Seeds Blong Yumi" will take place at 6:30 Friday, Sept 18 on Level 9 of the Wollongong City Council building. See the flier for more info. And on the following day, the Garden will host a very special seed savers workshop tutored by the Fantons. But it's totally booked out!!! We're sorry! Don't worry our local seed savers are here to fill the gap. Go to www.seedsavers.net to connect with the Illawara Seedsavers and get involved with preserving our human right to seeds!

Last but not least, the Garden is happy to anounce the return of the Waste Not! Fruit and Veg Swap on Saturday, Sept 26 from 9am-noon. Come and get involved with a like-minded community of growers who don't like to waste the fruits of their labor. Bring your garden surplus (or seeds and seedlings if that's what you would like to share) and swap others for the abundance from their gardens. Then sit back, enjoy a coffee and meet some new folks. Everybody is welcomed, even if you just want to come and hang-out. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact us.

See you all real soon,
The Garden Crew
