This VERY short notice opportunity has opened up back at the orchard we were going to have the July Pruning Workshop at … before it was seriously rained out!
We’ll be helping Neville, the owner, with more winter pruning, possibly apples & grapes this time.
A great opportunity to help out and gain some skills at the same time. Just rock up at the orchard.
| DATE & TIME
|| Thur 25 Aug , 9.45am
|| 565 Bedford Street, Mt Helena (look for MiT sign)
| WHAT TO BRING
|| Your gloves, secateurs, loppers, branch saws etc
Our July movie event is a movie about the effects of the globalisation of the fashion industry and some very unsustainable practices.
CLOTHES SWAP & SOUP
We’ll be starting earlier at 6pm with some crusty bread & homemade vego soup (gold coin donation) and a bit of a Clothes Swap. So bring along items you no longer need – kid’s, men’s or women’s. Could be perfect for someone else. It’s a great way to recycle.
MOVIE AT 7PM
Join us to share your excess garden produce, fruit, seeds, cuttings, plants, gardening magazines etc.
Bring things to share, take what you can use.
No money, just sharing.
Don’t have anything to share? Then bring along something for morning tea, or just bring your smile!
Email us if there’s something in particular you are looking for.
Runs every third Sunday of the month.
Coming up next Wednesday. Our super interesting discussion about where to stash your cash so it does some good for the Planet & you! Now, more than ever, it really matters what we do with our hard-earned cash.

House backs on to Sawyers Valley Oval (park at Oval)
Bring something tasty to share for morning tea.
Lots of good ideas here. Sally & Mike are both artists at heart: a potter and stonemason (he built the fab pizza oven at Glen Forrest Community Garden). This is Mike’s take on Permaculture author Linda Woodrow’s chicken dome tractor. The chooks do the pre-cultivation & fertilisation, then he plants vegies on the spot after the dome & chooks rotate on to the next quadrant. Works a charm! Also, their first edible garden enclosed by impressive rendered strawbale walls.
BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND for one last outdoor gathering in the Kinfolk Cafe Gardens.
February’s 100 Mile Meal was our first attempt to socialise and collect new ideas with catering. It worked! One exciting outcome was an offer by Vera Ross to run a workshop to show people how to make their own natural skincare creams (booking details further down). Some people reportedly were disappointed there wasn’t more opportunity to mix & mingle so we’ve taken that feedback on board as well. Once again, $20 pp with meat or vegetarian options (and don’t forget, Kinfolk are always willing to cater for special dietary needs. Just contact them to make arrangements) BYO favourite drinks as well.
MENU (coming soon)
Vegetarian OR Meat option (plus catering for special dietary needs by private arrangement)
BOOKINGS (see Eventbrite RSVP link on right sidebar of page)
Learn how to make quality natural skin creams. Our dear friend Vera Ross is an experienced Aromatherapist and has offered to guide some hands-on, natural skin cream making workshops.
Cost will be strictly to cover materials used, around $10 – $15 depending on the size jar you bring and oils you choose. The venue is Vera’s kitchen in Parkerville, with numbers limited to about 10. PLEASE NOTE CHANGE OF DATE FOR NEXT WORKSHOP.
