The Down to Earth mob’s Spring Seed Sharing & Planting (Sat morning 10 Sep) was great fun, as usual. Some hands-on seed raising soil mixing, then share, plant & socialise in that order. Vera explained that the e calendula flowers that were growing there in abundance, could be infused in oil for several weeks to be the base of a healing cream (stay tuned for more cream making)

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.
Nothing is closer to Transition’s heart than people creating food together locally. It is a radical act of reclaiming and healing our broken food system. So how happy are we that another Community is sprouting it’s own village veggie plot. VERY HAPPY! Just look at this photo of them … a good looking bunch (and that’s referring to John’s silverbeet !!) You can read all about their vision – and how to join in with them – in this Hills Gazette article http://www.communitynews.com.au/news/Village-garden-idea-blooming/7679670
