Well it has to be a great time to garden. Make sure you put extra seeds in for your friends and family.It's a good time to teach others what to do and help them to grow wholesome food at home.Often a herb garden is a good start with shallots, chillis, ginger, basil, thyme and rosemary. Minionette lettuce is a great start and its so easy to collect the seeds yourself at the end of the season. Dont forget to water your seedlings every day for the first week and maybe use a weak soluble fertilizer…See More

COVID-19 Strategies.

Under the current situation, it would be unwise for me to present myself at a clinic or pathology lab, for obvious reasons.I have therefore decided to lock-the-gate, quite literally, until such time as…See More

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

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…
