Diary Dates


Bellingen Farmers & Producers Markets

Wednesday, 25th November, 2.30pm - 5:30pm
Bellingen Market Park, Church St, Bellingen (next to the Tennis Courts)
I feel the need, the need for seed! 

Society can try to stand still, but we gardeners are still growing!  In our old stomping grounds at Bellingen Market Park, we plan to hold a stall, to get those seeds out and powering up. Come on down, buy your faves and maybe try something new. 

And support our hardworking local growers ☺

We have not committed to any other dates for seed sales at this market.

Please come along if you need seed, would like to pick the brains of one of the BSS seed gurus, have something to share or just want a friendly chat.

Visit Fernmount with Chris and Merren

Saturday November 14th, 11:00am-2:00pm

Chris and Merren are inviting us over for lunch at their new place the Fernmount. Originally planted by John and Carol Vernon, regular BSS members will be familiar with this very successful food forest garden. Pleasingly, they were able to pass the property onto enthusiastic new custodians.

The property is now being rejuvenated by Chris and Merren. They would like to share the inspiration that is this diverse wonderland of possibilities in our unique climate.

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.


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
