Our June Garden vist will be at Peter & Ann van Velzen's place that they call Ironbark Grange. www.ironbarkgrange.com.au/
In addition to our normal garden tour and afternoon tea Green Dean, will be giving us a short talk on food sovereignty and the importance of growing your own food.
Ironbark Grange is a family owned private property that has been developed using sustainable and energy efficient principles. The family has the view that we should tread softly on this earth and to this end, Ironbark Grange has been constructed in a manner that is sensitive to the environment and maximises the use of resources.
The design of the property as far as possible has been along permaculture principles. Rainwater collection, composting waste disposal, integration of animals and gardens, pest management and use of chemicals has been undertaken in an environmentally sensitive way.
The land has been planted with as wide a variety of fruit, nut and edible plants as we can manage, including bush tucker. Apart from meat, (we are not vegetarians) most of our fresh food intake will be harvested from the property.
Please bring along things to share: excess produce, seeds, seedlings, plant material, and something to eat for afternoon tea.
There will also be a donation box if you would like to contribute a few $ towards the cost of operating and promoting Logan Food Gardeners. For example the promotional seed packets, stalls, posters for displays, fliers etc.
Kids and partners are welcome.
Please RSVP to this event to indicate your attendance.
We look forward to seeing you on the 17th at 2pm
