Local Food Challenge – Garden Gathering

Sunday Nov 17th, 9-11am

We are very excited to be able to be help you all garden on a regular basis at the LDCG. We will be at the gardens, fortnightly and weather permitting on Sundays, starting 22nd September from 9 – 10.30am.

There will be various activities and themes each week, and also opportunities for creative moments. You will also be able to drop down any food scraps for composting at that time. A delicious home made morning tea will be provided, and our goal is to have some safe and social fun in the community garden.

We welcome Louise Harrison to talk about her experience taking the Local Food Challenge. Louise has some great tips and recipe ideas to share. Em Lupin from GULP will also join us to launch the Local Produce Directory, an online site where you can find local sussplier. She will also lead us in a cooking session, demonstrating how to make flour from cassava, a versatile tropical root vegetable.

Please wear a hat, bring drinking water and sunscreen.

There is a driveway entrance and parking space at the grass oval on the green shed side of the garden. Better yet be kind to the environment; ride your bike, walk or catch the number 4 bus.

We are always after volunteers to help on the day, with setting up, from 8.30am, and packing down, till 11am, and also helping with morning tea and general socialising with visitors. If you want to help out, even just once, please let us know either in the comments below, sending us a FB message or emailing Kim (plateofjoycatering@gmail.com).

Any suggestions and ideas for future themes for 2020 please certainly let us know, and if you are keen to take the lead with information sharing on the day, those extras you can provide will make the Sunday mornings very special.

Keep your eyes on the FB event as we announce upcoming activities for each session.
