Monday Evening Meeting, 9/2 “Review summer and planning winter”
Mary is back and will fill us in on the changing seasons, where we are now and where we want to be as winter comes along. I think this year has been a little odd but that just might be me. It will be good to get a good technical perspective from Mary.
Bring a small plate to share. 07:00 start and 09:00 finish.
Our new fortnightly stall at the market.
Running a stall at the Thursday Organic Corner Store Market is a big change for us. And maybe for the better. We will run the fortnightly sales but still continuing with the Swap and Share. I find both are good to get to know the Organic Market people.
Our trading table ↑. Just joking, but who knows what we will have down the track.
Outdoor Adventure Challenge – Visitors
The garden will be involved in the Outdoor Adventure Challenge on Sunday 22nd February, This event encourages participants to visit different places within the Holdfast Bay area, where they are given a challenge and get their passport signed off. The Holdfast Bay Council website has more information.
Veterans’ Sausage Sizzle (Twice) and plant sales
Luck gave us the use of the Veterans’ sausage sizzle twice on the Organic Market Thursday. We had a lazy day cooking what were the world’s best snags.
We have a total of $265 from plant sales and sausage sales. The trend is clear.
The ‘surplus’ box
The idea is working. If your plot has any vegies you can’t use, put them in the box for anyone else to have.
The Tour DownUnder decorations
AND, there was a little flag in each pot saying Glenelg North Community Garden.
The Mysterious Secateurs
We’ve been missing one of the better quality secateurs for several months now and found them outside the shed very dirty and rusty. Subsequently in the following week the cleaner identical pair then disappeared!! This mystery caused the committee to spend hours and much wine discussing and arguing the facts, the cause, the motivation… We are now hoping perhaps someone may be able to shed some light on these mysterious happenings, my dear Watson. We have to report missing tools to council so would prefer to wait for the miraculous, karma induced, return of the second pair.
Glandore Community Garden Open Day
Should be very good with Sophie Thompson talking . (And giveaways) https://www.facebook.com/pages/Sophie-Thomson/1401037253485132?sk=timeline
and Rare Fruits Harry listening.
Sun 15th Feb. 10:00, 12:00 pizza lunch‼ 1:30 Sophie talk, 2:30 Harry talk, 3:30 propagating workshop. Highly recommended.
