The Food Growers subgroup was born out of the idea of getting to know others in our community with similar interests (growing food). We have monthly Growers Gatherings when we visit someone's home, tour the garden, share seeds, seedlings, cuttings, excess produce, delicious food and garden wisdom. We also have several other ideas and projects currently in various stages of development, including a local labelling campaign, tool/skill sharing, working bees, creating a map of underutilised fruit/nut trees, and a living locally challenge.
Please add your email address to the box below to receive invitations and updates from the Food Growers subgroup.
You are invited to join us for our monthly Growers Gatherings. An opportunity to meet others, learn & share tips and tricks for getting the most out of our South Hobart gardens, eat yummy food and swap seeds, produce and stories. There is no need to bring anything except yourself and your love of growing! Enter your email address in the box above to get a reminder about our next gathering.
Special Deal on Rainwater Tanks with TankTec
If so, sign up to Landshare Australia and connect with others in the neighbourhood. There could be someone just around the corner who can help out! Also sign up if you have skills or expertise you would be happy to share. New gardeners love a hand!
Skills and Tools Share List
At the Growers Gathering on the weekend, we thought it would be great to compile a list of resources that can be shared amongst group members. Millie offered to compile a list that can be posted on the the Website, please email email@example.com with a list of tools and skills that you have to share.
Buy Local Labelling Campaign
A working group is developing a project to highlight the benefits (environmentally and economically) of buying local products from local suppliers in South Hobart. If you are interested in being part of this group, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0403222405.
Living Locally 7 day challenge
Annie had a great idea to get a group of people together to live locally for a week. The oil drum has a story about some people doing it in Sydney (http://anz.theoildrum.com/node/5412). If you are interested in collaborating with a group of people who are eating local food, minimising car use, socialising and sharing thier experience. If you are interested in being involved email lissa(at)southhobart.org with your contact details to be forwarded to Annie.
