Shona is a degree-qualified Western Herbal Medicine practitioner. She will discuss some of the actions of herbs, using the correct herb is extremely important.

Please bring along a plate of food to share. There will also be a secret santa/raffle table. This has become a bit of a Christmas tradition. Everyone who brings along a gift to contribute to this table will go home with something new for themselves. Please don't wrap the gifts, as people choose from the table what they want. In previous years people have brought along unusual plants, cookbooks, tools, really anything you think a fellow gardener may be interested in. Hope to see you there.See More

We'd love to see the way people are managing their gardens in smaller suburbia blocks as well as the larger blocks. It's a fabulous way to get different ideas. We swap seeds and plants, share a cuppa, and chat to one another. We all garden differently and that's okay - we can all learn from one another. Please PM me if you would…See More
My husband (Rod) and I love gardening. Our vegetables are grown mainly in raised garden beds and we have a few fruit trees on our property as well. I have been a member of Crestmead Community Garden since November 2017.
