Name this post and help launch a new tradition!

I think there should be a time every year when devoted food gardeners do as all good believers do - participate in some kind of meaningful ritual. I am a bit hopeless at religion but even I can think of several such traditions which illustrate what I mean. There is the whole 40 days and 40  nights thing that Christians call Lent; there is Ramadan, the Muslims' month of fasting; and, more a cultural event than a religion, there is the week of the Chinese New Year celebrations. I am sure there…

Organic Sharecroppers Collectives

At last something positive to write about, to get excited about, to feel passionate about, in this crazy world of disasters and media madness.

All who read this blog probably know or know of people who would love to get out there in the fields and grow food, organically and ethically, but they do not have the land / money / time to be without an income etc. Moreover, we all know how backward is the thinking of many of our so called leaders, when it comes to promoting the reduction of…

House sit in Hobart, Tasmania for summer

There is a Tasmanian friend of mine who is going to be away from Nov 29th 2010 to Jan 10th 2011 and she needs a house sitter. She is a keen gardener and needs someone to care for her pots and garden whilst staying in her home in Hobart.

The place is very central but peaceful, great views, north facing, 3 bedroom, new kitchen, big sunny deck, very pleasant home. The person would need to contribute for cost of power and gas, and a donation towards general expenses of household…

I found a couple of great sites when I was researching this - a couple who have espaliered lots of different trees in lots of different patterns http://www.rarefruit-sa.org.au/Espalier/Trees/Trees.htm and also the QLD gov site http://www2.dpi.qld.gov.au/horticulture/5508.html.

Hi Kate,
Greetings from Adelaide and congratulations on your lovely new home. I love the idea of WKI Day - just wondering if most members grow at home or if they also grow edibles at work. When we were building our office/surgery we replaced the fence around the carpark with a row of fruit trees - I like to think that this helped feed the homeless... I also have another question - I recently tried some Persimmons for the first time and was so impressed we bought a tree - has anyone tried to Espalier a Persimmon Tree and how did it go?

What's Buzzing?
