The next Kitchen Gardeners’ Society meet is coming up and it’s all about bees.
Once again it’s at Steve and Elizabeth’s house, Marmalade Cottage (RSVP for address).
Sunday 5 August
1.30 – 4pm
Bees are an essential part of the productive garden – they pollinate for fruit production, and if you have a hive, give you honey. Without them, life on earth starves.
As well as learning about bees and keeping them, we’ll have the sharing table – if you have something from your garden or kitchen you’d like to share, please bring it along, and take home something from someone else’s garden.
After the bee presentation, we’ll have afternoon tea. If you’d like to bring something along yummy, please do. Perhaps with a honey theme?
There isn’t a great deal of shelter in the backyard, so if it’s wet, bring your umbrella. It isn’t a terribly kid-friendly place (there’s poo and rusty metal) so you’ll need to keep a close eye on any little ones.
Please email email@example.com to RSVP.
The best way to learn how to do something is from others. With the TTG Kitchen Gardeners’ Society, you can see and hear first hand how people developed their back yard garden. And you can always get your hands dirty if you want.
The first monthly meet was a great success: veggies planted, hot-house installed, bed dug and all with delicious wood fired pizza! Thanks to Debra & Peter for sharing their place.
Next gathering, Sunday 1st of July, stay tuned for details
