Emma discussing weeds!
By Karral Millar & Chiara Cass
Workshop: Embrace your Weeds, held Thursday 12/10/17
Presenter: Emma Street
As gardeners we spend a great deal of time and money and risk our health with the use of herbicides in order to remove weeds from our garden. Perhaps we should rethink and use some of these weeds which can be delicious and highly nutritious. Continue reading
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).

Along with Wendy’s notes from the preserving session, we have a couple of other resources you might be interested in, namely Jacky’s favourite websites handout and Helena’s eggplant kasundi recipe. Enjoy!

Harvesting summer fruit
By Sue Brunskill
This summer we stayed at home instead of going away and I have really enjoyed making new recipes and turning the excess fruit into food for later, including labna, kefir and green drinks, and my usual plum products. I must say I only ever make things that are no fuss and easy to make, and also easy to use later.
