Diary Dates

High level of interest

We have had a lot of interest in our next garden visit. Which is fantastic.

Unfortunately, we have been over subscribed. If you have RSVPd for this event and received a reply email, but no longer wish to attend, please contact Leela by phone: 0417 536 490 or email:

We can then give your spot to someone on the waiting list. Our waiting list is ordered, based on the date that people RSVPd. Anyone RSVPing now is extremely unlikely to get to the top of the waiting list, as we already have 20 people queued up, hoping that someone pulls out.

We will send a confirmation email to all people booked in.


Garden visit to Shambaba Retreat

Saturday August 29th, 11:00am-2:00pm


'Shambaba Retreat', formerly known as 'The Old Satyananda Ashram, is now home to a new Bellingen Shire family. They have taken on 12 acres of bushland and established gardens (both ornamental and productive) in beautiful Glennifer. Set up now to operate as a retreat and education centre, they would love to share with us the beauty of the property, and discover more about productive growing in this unique, gorgeous part of the world.
