6.30 pm – Connect – Doors Open

Please bring your surplus produce, plants, seeds, books, craft supplies, tools etc. to share with others on the Share Table.  Place your donations on the table when you arrive, and then sharing will open at 8.00pm after the LEARN session.  Browse, ask questions and chat together.

7.00 pm – Learn – Plant Inspiration

Presented by Megan Robins, Janine Banks and Debbie Bassingthwaighte.

This month we have a panel of 3 experienced gardeners who will share some of their favourite plants with you.  This will be a practical session to inspire you to grow some productive, useful plants in your own backyard.  Learn about some unusual permaculture perennials you may not have grown before, along with some old favourites that are well-suited to our bio-region.  Plus hear what makes these hardy plants so special and ways you might use and integrate a few at your place.

8.00 pm – Connect – Light Supper and Share Table

A light supper will be served.  Sharing of produce opens at 8.00pm to allow plenty of time for everyone to place their donations on the Share Table, and then give you the opportunity to browse, connect and make your selections during supper.
