Hi all. Swaps are going well at our new home with lots of stone fruit, figs, tomatoes and all the summer bounty, plus bananas (both plants and fruit) and seedlings. The community garden is a good fit for us.
For those who just can’t get enough swapping, Cherylin recommends the Westside swap, on the 3rd Saturday at Frank Norton Reserve (cnr Rankine Rd and Torrens St Torrensville) from 11-12.
The Henley and Grange swap continues to meet on the 2nd and 4th Saturday of each month at the Henley Community Garden (this is on the NW corner of Henley Oval where White St meets Raymond St, alternatively you can get to it at the end of Chambers St).
I put the old location for the Henley Community Garden on the previous email. It is actually nearest the NW corner of Henley Oval where White St meets Raymond St. You can drive into the Oval car park from this entrance which is the nearest car park for the Garden. See you there I hope. Sue
Anyone who is on our email list would have just got an email about this, however we have some subscribers to the WordPress site who are not on the email list and vice versa, hence the double email!
A very happy New Year to you all. We’ve now had our first few swaps at the Henley Community gardens, and it’s proving to be a good fit for us and them.
To keep updated and follow the WordPress blog, you need to subscribe to it – there’s a link on the top bar that says “following” or “unfollow” – click on that to either get updates and posts (and again. I won’t do many!).
Swaps from now on are at the Henley Community Garden (Henley Grange Memorial Oval, Cnr Cudmore Tce and Atkin St, Henley Beach), on the 2nd and 4th Saturday of each month. Swaps are at the usual time, 10.15 for a swap at 10.30am sharp.
The next swap is on January 10th 2015. I expect lots of fruit on offer, although I have been away this year, so my garden is a bit less abundant than usual … only one apricot on my usually prolific tree, and a rat plague (they managed to get under the net on my dwarf peach tree and pretty well took a bit out of every peach!!).
I’d also like to give a plug to a great site for those of you who want home grown, local produce….check out http://www.ripenear.me/ – you can also sell or give away your surplus.
Season’s Greetings to all!
There will be a swap on Saturday 27th December at our new home…
We will be meeting at the Henley Community Garden (Henley Grange Memorial Oval, Cnr Cudmore Tce and Atkin St, Henley Beach), on the 2nd and 4th Saturday of each month. Meet at the usual time, 1015 for a swap at 1030am sharp. I apologise, I will be helping out with a snorkelling fish count down at Second Valley, but hope to see you all on the 10th January. Cheers Sue

The library turned out to be too hard…we needed expensive insurance, in case we bashed each other with carrots I suppose!
