"The event appears to be booked up, however I know from experience that people often book and then don't show.  If you put your name on the wait list and show up on the day, you could get a seat."

LFG Birthday Party and cooking demo @ LFG President, Lyn Buffett's place at Tanah Merah

August 16, 2020 from 1:30pm to 4:30pm
Join us at Lyn’s abundant garden. Everything is sufficiently watered; the soil is full of organic matter and brimming with life; and the plants are flourishing. The main thing that Lyn has done is to turn her messy piles of prunings into amazingly neat and useful rows of composting material that run across the contour. These rows of branches and organic matter are breaking down and providing nourishment to the soil and plants. She has placed some of these rows on the down-hill side of the…See More

Climate change action. What can you do right now?

Posted by Colin Westwood on November 15, 2019 at 16:41 0 Comments

Did you realise that LCC is spending something like $1 million per year of your rate money on destroying what little remains of our carbon sink, (forestry) to produce this completely non-recyclable landfill. Yes, it's the 'Our Logan' magazine that I'm speaking of. 

Those of you who attended the Logan Eco Forum event last month (which was the forum you're having when you're not having a forum), will have heard the key speaker Jon Dee of jondee.com Planet Ark founder fame, who was flown…

Grow your own coconut from a store purchased de-husked one.

Posted by Colin Westwood on November 8, 2019 at 7:19 1 Comment

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BieelvE_ZPI

I'm surprised to find it possible and so easy to do. Although I already have 2 coconut palms in my garden, I'm in the process of growing another as they take up little room and are likely to produce so much food. The video shows a plastic zip bag as a main feature, but what I did is use a tight fitting lidded plastic bucket. After the initial 2 day soak, I marked the top of…

Tiger Grass plants and leaves

Posted by Alice Lau on October 27, 2019 at 21:42 0 Comments

Hi fellow gardeners,
I’m after a Tiger Grass plant and their leaves. If you have any, I’m happy to exchange or swap with plants or organic miso paste or organic tamari.

My mother wants the leaves to wrap food.

Many thanks in advance.
