|Meets for the rest of 2019:|
12th September - Home of Maurie & Yeoey Damon, 1 Currajong Ave., Lakeside at 10am.
Maurie is one of our local beekeepers and loves wicking beds. He will show us how to produce an all year round supply of vegetables from your garden by using modified hydroponics & wicking tubs in a variety of containers to suit your family needs
|10th October: 10am. Our hosts will be Terry & Marieia Obst. If you haven't been to Marieia & Terry's home before, this is a wonderful place. Always new projects going on. I understand they have planted a new Davidson Plum patch.|
Property is called ‘Tranquil Valley’. A large sign with surname T & M Obst together with the property name is at the entrance at the top of our driveway. Our address is RN42 Foxwell Road Kureen (Malanda). Foxwell Road is easily accessed off the Malanda Atherton Road.
Tranquil Valley Farm:
A 7acre property lovingly replanted and restored over the last 5 years. Our property now incorporates a native food forest, land for wildlife, pastures, fruit trees, ornamental and vegetable gardens, chickens and steers. We are transforming Tranquil Valley Farm to an old fashioned holistic farm incorporating Organic, Biodynamic and Permaculture principles. Other items of interest within our property include wildlife, art projects, leadlighting, woodworking and wine/beer making. Our aim is to contribute first hand to our existence as we age and to create a working structure around us that will support us and others spiritually and physically. Our ideal retirement property!
|14th November: Our last meeting for 2019, so please bring a plate of Xmas with you. |
Venue will be Vivienne Stringer's home at Bunya Close, Yungaburra. We will reconfirm this nearer the time once we check Vivienne is well enough for us to come.
