Seed packing at Karin’s Dreamtime garden

Saturday March the 6th, 11:00am-2:00pm

The Autumn Plant Fair will be happening this March. BSS needs some busy worker bees for seed packing the weekend beforehand. Karin has kindly offered to host again. We were treated to a delightful visit there last winter. Time now to get down to some serious business, with the sharing & packing of seeds grown by our fabulous local community.
There will be good food, good cheer and let's  kick off the new decade of seed saving and sharing with refreshed vigour.
(I'm so excited! ☺)

Please bring any seeds you have saved for sharing. If you have cuttings or live plants for our plant fair stall, please continue to look after these and deliver them directly to the plant fair or on the Friday prior to the plant fair.

If you have seeds to donate, but will not be attending the seed cleaning, please contact Jeff as soon as possible, so that we can arrange to pick the seeds up and clean them ready for the plant fair.


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

If you RSVP for this event, an email (containing directions) will be sent to the email address you provide on the RSVP form. If you do not receive an email, please check your junk mail folder.

Organiser: Leela O'Callaghan or phone 0417 536 490
