Our final gathering for the year is an excursion to RAD Growers at Bungowannah (about 15 minutes drive from Albury).
We’re thrilled to be visiting this exciting food growing adventure (‘Real And Delicious’), just as it turns one year old. There have been plenty of ups and downs in this story already, not least of which was the recent flooding that inundated the patch.
If you’re keen to see food growing taken to the next level, and learn more about seasonal, local food production in the form of market gardening and eggs from chickens on pasture, be sure to RSVP.
Over to Erin from RAD Growers:
G’day mighty Seed Savers,
All current members are invited to come and hang out at RADgrowers patch to chat all things veggie growing and lend a hand if you’re keen.
Where: RADgrowers patch (exact addie provided on response to RSVP)
When: Saturday 5th November
– 10am walk and chat
– 11:30am (ish) share some food (BYO contribution)
– 12-2pm green gym work out (aka marketing gardening!)
If you can only make it for the first part, that’s fine too.
RSVP: Why not now – pop your details in here, so we know who is coming and can send you the directions. If possible, register by noon on Friday 4th, please.
What to bring? Please wear protective shoes, bring a hat, and your quick reflexes to stop those mozzies in their tracks. Bring a plate of something to share if you wish, particularly if you’re staying on to burn some energy in the garden.
If you’re willing to get your hands a little dirty and participate in a free cardio session, bring your gloves and lend a hand. There’ll be compost and mulch spreading, seedling planting, weeding, feeding and music requests to be made.
Although small, we are a working farm. Most fences are electric. Beware of uneven surfaces and respectful of the main house – the landlords can be grumpy.
Looking forward to seeing you all!
