We'll be talking about Safe Seeds given the outcome in the landmark court case in Western Australia this week and how to protect our seed bank from GM contamination. We will also chat about winter crops to grow now.
Bring a friend or neighbour, seeds/plant material to share or just come along to meet like-minded locals.
Activities for June
According to the moon calendar, there is an 11 day cycle of prolific growth for above ground plants starting 29 May - a good time to get stuck into Winter planting. Beans, peas, brassicas (like cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, mustard and kale), leafy greens (like spinach, chard, rocket and lettuce) + many other vegies grow well at this time of year.
