PepperTree Spring Garden Fiesta 9th November

Email Header test 2

Hi Swappers,

This weekend's November Swap will be kinda low key as we focus on getting ourselves ready for the Spring Garden Fiesta on 9th November - see below. The usual Edible Swap Table, Community Plant Nursery and Popup Cafe will all be open and operating for your affordable enjoyment, purchases and pleasure. The bread oven will be fired up for your sourdough experiments so bring them along to be cooked up.

If you have some spare energy and time there will be opportunity on Saturday to help out with some site preparation tasks like weeding and general tidying up. Look for Ross or Tash during the morning.

Chookchat @ Chookville will be hosted by Paul - come along to share and learn chook wisdom with others. From 11am.

Join us this Saturday, November 2nd, 10am - 12pm for the Coburg Home-Grown Edibles Swap at PepperTree Place.

Spring Fiesta - 9th November 2013, 10am-4pm

The annual Fiesta is a chance for community to enjoy its local garden in full bloom with a popup cafe, veg and meat barbeque to keep people fed and watered.
Free entertainment on stage as well as workshops for adults and kids throughout the day include the Fabulous Zucchini Clan (pictured), The Night Before Tomorrow, the Tarentella School of Dance, Vardos, The Black Harrys and local Coburg choirs.

Free workshops on Growing Summer Bumper Crops by Diana Cotter; Unusual Edibles by Chris Williams, Zero Waste Challenge by Tammy Sherer, Successful worm farming by Worm Lovers - Richard Thomas and the science of composting with Matthew Daniel.

Visitors will have the chance to explore the community nursery and buy affordable plants and spring vegie seedlings, check out the chooks and take part in a number of kids' activities throughout the day.
