Ready to embrace your weeds?

EmbraceWeeds

Our next event …

Don’t just reach for the glyphosate! We will look at safer, more environmentally friendly ways of dealing with these “plants in the wrong place”. Best of all, we will learn to view them as friends with a multitude of valuable and delicious uses.

Join us for this special session, presented by Emma Street. You may know edible weeds are a highly nutritious, sustainable, local food source, but how often are they seen as tasty as well? We will discuss some of the species and recipes that make weeds delicious to eat, as well as some ideas to preserve them for use throughout the year.

 

When: Thursday 12th October, 6:30pm – 8pm.
Where: Sustainable Activity Centre, Lincoln Causeway, Wodonga

Virtual Garden Visit To Thea’s Garden

We’re taking a virtual garden tour! All photos by Thea.

We all love to visit gardens (and we’ll do that again as a group in November!) but if a physical visit isn’t possible, how about a virtual one?

Thea & Luke’s Albury rental garden has been a source of inspiration (for us and their social media followers!) and experimentation (for them). We were sad to learn that Thea and Luke are moving on from Albury, but Thea’s kindly agreed to share some of her experiences gardening in our climate with us before they go.
Come along to find out more! Continue reading
