If you missed out
last week or loved it and want some more, Sue Rajaguru will demonstrate how to
make delicious dishes from plants that are typically overlooked or destined to
be composted but in fact have high value for cooking. She will share her knowledge
passed down from her Grandmother explaining how we often mistake plants for
weeds that are actually superfoods if prepared correctly.
Growing Point is happy to offer our first workshop at Dignan Street Community Garden since March. Sue Rajaguru will demonstrate how to make delicious dishes from plants that are typically destined to be composted but in fact have high value for cooking. She will share her knowledge passed down from her Grandmother explaining how we often mistake plants for weeds that are actually superfoods if prepared correctly.
Wednesday 17th and 24th, 12.30- 1pm at 25 Dignan Street, Point Chevalier.
We are opening up again and the garden needs some community love after being shut down. Everyone is welcome to the Monthly working bee this Sunday 31 May 11-1pm. Bring your own gloves and respect social distancing.
We also did an Instagram take over posting a video every day for a week. You can see Ellen do a history of the site and a walk around introduction and Ange on how and why to make protozoa tea and poly cropping with high density planting and bio diversity:
