After Alistair and I attended an information session last night at Preston Town Hall we are now officially part of the Darebin Food Harvest Network and have joint responsibility with other food/garden/permaculture groups in Darebin for the maintenance of the website.
Click on this link to check it out and let me know if you have anything you would like to put up there- it's a great network and should help us reach more of our local community and other like-minded green folk.

Alistair's new Heritage Orchard is coming along nicely with broadbeans sprouting and destined to be slashed for green manure. (We now have a "Heritage Fruits" page on the blog for progress reports). Chris and Alistair had some friendly discussions ...but no one was injured.
Chris and Liz removed the lemon verbena in the old herb garden in preparation for Liz's new plot. (So nice to have her back too!)
is the Working Bee so hopefully we'll get the last of
them planted then.
We all can't wait for some real Spring weather now!

The bees were busy and so were we on Sunday with a good turn-out for our Annual General Meeting. Elizabeth took the minutes (very professionally too) and Heather provided us with popcorn to sustain us throughout the meeting. At the end of the meeting it was lovely to be able to give Ros and Marijka their Diggers' vouchers in appreciation for everything they both do- they are the heart and soul of our gardens.
