Not much on this coming weekend and week!!  Might be a good time to prepare the soil for planting those tomatoes, maybe plant some seed potatoes midweek and herbs at the weekend. Give the pantry cupboard a spring clean, preparing for the next 6 months of harvest.  ;-0.

Enjoy YPRL Food Fest’s progressive dinner next Thursday  those of you who were lucky enough to book in.

  1. Great “local food connections” went on at Edendale on Saturday. I was teaching a workshop in Vegetable seedling propagation whilst the food swap was going on outside the education building. Most of the class were unaware of food swap and were interested to know all about it. We have now made 13 more connections 🙂
    The next food based workshop at Edendale will focus on preparing for summer in the veggie garden. Check the Edendale website for details

  2. You said, “Not much going on this coming weekend!”. I say there was so much going on and thanks to you, we know about them all. The AGM was a good gathering place of good discussions and ideas. Sorry I didn’t stay to get my hands dirty. Look forward to more smaller and targeted task get-togethers. Thank you for keeping us all informed, Robyn. Keep up the good work connecting people.
