Event Description

There's always something new happening at Warren Goodlet's place in Crestmead as you will know already from his regular posts and recent photos on the LFG website. Our June garden visit gives us a great chance to find out what Warren's been up to.

The concept of Warren's garden is to grow crops that produce large volumes of food without taking up too much ground space. The Ceylon Spinach covering his garden shed (pictured) and the substantial banana bunches that his property is currently producing, are testament to his success.  

Not only does Warren garden for his own use but he actively supports his neighbours with his produce and food growing advice and support, and giving away surplus food to needy people through avenues like a church-based food bank which is soon to be launched.

Warren has been developing his garden for over six years and he actively applies the knowledge he gains as a member of Logan Food Gardeners and by connecting with other food growing networks, like Diggers.

During our June visit, not only will Warren discuss what he's been doing in his garden, he hopes to share a DVD outlining the establishment of the Food Bank and he will explain how he has embarked on preserving his excess produce. Some of us have sampled his excellent Pawpaw Chutney and Fig Jam. He will also tell us about his recent experiments with Tabasco Sauce.

When you join us at this Garden Visit, please bring along:

  • a plate of food to share for morning tea
  • your own mug and/or cup
  • a folding chair
  • things to share: seeds, seedlings, spare produce or propagating plant material of some kind
  • an umbrella if it is raining
  • your contribution of between $3 and $5 per person which helps Logan Food Gardeners to cover its costs.

Kids and partners are welcome, however please leave your pets at home.

Please RSVP to this event to let us know you are coming.

Warren's address is 33 Whiteman Street, Crestmead Qld 4132.

Hi Warren, Thank you so much for making me feel welcome at your home. Sorry I couldn't stay for the whole time (had something else on). You and your garden are an inspiration! So much growing in a suburban garden. You motivate me to be a better person :)

Looking forward to today. May only be able to stay for an hour as I have something else on but should be a great day anyway.

Not sure what recipes members may have for Kaffir limes, but we have quite a few, as well as many smaller than usual, very strong flavoured Guatemalan lemons. I can bring bags of these along on Saturday if you're interested?
