Annual General Meeting next

Saturday 10th Sept

Yes, its next Saturday. Come and potter about early; the short AGM will be

at 11:30. It will be followed by a meal of either soup or BBQ depending on which way the wind blows.

Quorum and votes etc. if you can’t make it, Chris would like your proxy (contact him).

And if you are not financial, please amend your wayward ways ($10) so you can vote.

All vacancies on the committee were filled but someone had to move to the country.

(With our best wishes). So there is a vacancy. We will rise to the challenge.

$Neville$ is not happy


All plot fees fall due on 1st Sept. It is $40 which covers you until end of February.

Also, there are a couple of memberships $10 which are still outstanding.

Also there are still a few lottery books to return.

Hence Neville’s unhappy face above. Please make him happy.

Payments can be made to Neville direct, or as a deposit into our bank account.

Mountains moved


The Activity Day was a great success with plants potted, paths layed,

irrigation built and sheds cleaned.

Great job.

Bernie checks a Measured Irrigation inspection point. There are 16 of these clear tubes. And all plots are now on the system to be watered depending on evaporation.

Chris skilfully kicks some of the new pipes into place before burying. NOTE Ask before you dig.

MI Leon


The flow splitter which covers all plots.  Don’t touch anything, it is very delicate.

Nice cover over the pipes, Leon.

Champion bricklaying team hard at work.

All layed in one single day!

Grafting Class

09-03 Newsletter_00003

Sally Osterstock lead us most pleasantly through the finer points of grafting

a ‘scion’ of one tree onto another.



Within a short time, we will confidently be harvesting Santa Rosa plums,

Satsuma plums and Luisa plums all from our Luisa plum tree. Fingers crossed. PS Delicate, don’t touch

Cure found in garden

09-03 Newsletter_00007

Catalyst in ABC stated that plenty of fruit and vegetables with heaps of

inherent fibre will fix many modern diseases. They also recommend the

ancient medicine of vinegar. The garden is producing heaps of greens at

the moment and will continue to do so.  Harvest, eat and safeguard your health.


We will either overdo the strawberry eating or sell these healthy plants for

the larger community to enjoy. Nice one, Pam and John.

Seed Freedom Food Festival

09-03 Newsletter_00018

So much going on everywhere. As above, Saturday Sept 24th, 10 am 1 Holland St Adelaide  (near King W and South Tce)

But wait there’s more, lots more. Huge list of meaningful entertainment here: Activities, and opportunities in all things environmental and sustainable. It puzzles my why people go overseas to be entertained.

Bees in the wild

09-03 Newsletter_00008

I’ve never seen honey bees set up without a bee hive box before. They like this olive tree.

Despite the swelling, I’d still like to have a bee hive in or near the garden. The swelling took 4 days to go down. The above was just a big mistake and I don’t blame the bees.
