Stingless Hive split, Climate action discussion. at Woodridge

March 21, 2020 from 9:30am to 11:30am
My Dog barking problem appears to be solved, and it should be cool enough to do a hive split and by then. You should also be ready to discuss what we can do to protect ourselves in the now  rapidly changing climate. Also on display will be the small fresh water crayfish pond (yabbies) and, if fire restrictions permit, a bio-char burn.See More

Climate change action. What can you do right now?

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 in at who…See More

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

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BieelvE_ZPII'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 the floating coconut…See More

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.
