Christmas Brunch / Secret Santa at Logan Reserve

December 2, 2018 from 8am to 11:30am
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

Crop Swap & Mini Working Bee at Logan Central

We have such an exciting event planned for this coming Sunday!! Another one which is unmissable! We are so lucky to have Shona Churchill coming to talk to us about herbal medicine. 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. That there are so many anti-inflammatory herbs can be confusing for people because some are specific for different types of inflammation e.g.…See More

LFG Event: Annual Birthday Party and garden visit at Tanah Merah

You will know if you have seen Lyn's place before, that it is really impressive and worth seeing.  Amazingly it seems to get better every year, so it is worth coming even if you have seen it before. Here is what she has to say about it:I love my garden so much.  I love the food I harvest and feed to my family and give to my friends. I love that I can create something of value for little or no money.  I love that my garden and my produce inspires other people to grow themselves.  I love that my…See More

LFG Event: Gardening for Lazy Slobs at Shaker Park

July 1, 2018 from 9am to 11am
Marylin is welcoming us to her garden in July.  She lives on a battlexe or easement block so she doesn't have a front yard and can use her full quarter acre for foraging.  From Marylin"I’m not passionate about any particular style of gardening but have leaned heavily towards practical permaculture since reading Bill Mollison's first book in the 1970s. The garden is roughly divided into two zones, orchard and veggies, but my only livestock is a top bar beehive and a collection of visiting wild…See More

Satisfying day

Posted on August 3, 2014 at 15:00 2 Comments

Firstly, I tried out my homemade citrus cleaner; it smells wonderful and does a good job.  Thank you Roman and Jana for the recipe.  I also planted some seeds and documented what seed went where in my planting tray.  I am feeling very organised as I usually rely on my memory for this job!  Lastly I preserved some lemons as a birthday prezzie for a friend.  Thank goodness I had heaps of lemons to get the 2 cups of juice for the brine.  Anyway, it was a great way to use up surplus lemons and…


A visit to Toowoomba and meeting Jerry Coleby- Williams

Posted on September 22, 2013 at 20:30 0 Comments

This weekend we visited friends in Toowoomba and went to the Carnival of Flowers.  Walking through a pavilion, I noticed that non other than our local hero, Jerry Coleby-Williams, was about to give a free talk.  From a front row seat I enjoyed over an hour of Jerry's time as he spoke about his early years and the influence of his family on his love of gardening.  His family were role models, they taught him and they encouraged him.  Jerry asked that we do the same to the younger generations…

Weekend in the garden

Posted on March 25, 2013 at 10:32 4 Comments

I have had the most satisfying weekend working in my garden.  We have had a wire enclosure built so I now don't have to worry about the free range chooks & possums getting into the garden.  Last year our old carport and very delapidated chook run were taken down so we have recycled most of the stuff from that (except the wire and the reo which was used  used as supports).   So this weekend I moved one of our raised garden beds into the new enclosure and got it organised complete with…

Thanks for the welcome.It seems as though I will have to spend a lot of time on this machine reading all the tips to producing an edible food garden. This machine is not the love of my life. Regards
