Garden visit to Dreamtime multiple occupancy gardens

Saturday June 27th, 12:00pm-3:00pm

How are things growing at your place? Reaping the benefits of hard work and saving seeds, I hope! BSS have had an 'unprecedented' demand for seeds and plant materials and there's been much enthusiasm for homegrown harvests.

To keep the momentum growing, we are planning a small meet up; to exchange seeds, surplus and stories. We also plan to tour a section of the Dreamtime multiple occupancy and see the beauty and bounty some of its members have been busy creating. 


Numbers of course will have to be limited, so rsvp to grab a place, then details and directions will be given to successful respondents. Please keep in mind the concerns of current times for the good of all, and let us lose ourselves to the beauty of the Bellinger River valley.
The event is already oversubscribed, but you can still RSVP in the hope that several people who have been granted spots can no longer attend.

Coming? RSVP to obtain the address and so we know who’s attending, even if you already know how to get there. 

Organiser: Leela O'Callaghan or phone 0417 536 490
