A swaping great day

Well after having to cancel our swap 2 months in a row due to bad weather we were finally blessed with a fantastic sunny autumn day. After a bit of a slow start the crowd started to arrive and the table fills up with all sorts of fruit and veg. Including a few unusual items which always sparks some conversations.

Well that's what make the swap so interesting... you never know who or what will turn up.

See you next month!

Combined Workshop & Working Bee

Wow what a great day it turned out to be! After some very dodgy weather leading up to Sunday. We woke up to a crisp sunny day and over 25 participants turned up to the veggie garden workshop we held in collaboration with Wollongong City Council.

After some introductions and a short session of theory, it was time for a practical demonstration of building "No Dig" garden beds from our home grown facilitators Aaron & Shez.

Then after a short coffee break it was time for all the participants to get stuck in and have a go themselves. and they sure did!  Next everyone had a go at pocket planting a load of veggies into the newly made beds.

Lots of participants hung around to share lunch and help with the working bee.

Well done everyone ? Check back here to see how the veggies you planted are going.

We would love to hear about how your home veggie patch turn out. Just email us a few  pics and tell us how it goes. Feel free to email any questions and we will do our best to answer them.
