'Tis the Season to be Blooming

Let's celebrate the equinox together at a creative dinner on the day, Wednesday 23rd September at the Daylesford Town hall.


 Don your spring attire, prepare your best vegetarian dish from what's available in the garden now or from your preserved stocks and come on down at 7.30pm with a song, a dance, a poem, a short story or just good cheer. Reserve your place at the table here

In Chinese thought, spring is associated with the direction east – the sunrise direction as Earth spins us toward the beginning of each new day. Spring is also associated with the color green, the sound of shouting, the wood element, the climate of wind, things sprouting, 
your eyes, your liver, your anger, patience and altruism – and a green dragon.

Working bee at Captain's Creek farm

Spring has sprung and it is time to prepare your garden beds and get your seed in trays. Let's go and give farmer Rod a hand to put his seed in trays on Saturday September 12th at 11am for about and hour and a half. If it is a day like today we could sit around afterwards and share a picnic. Come prepared.
Bring the kids and we can have a fun time and learn a bit more about the farm and where the veggie boxes come from.
Book here for car pooling and to let us know you are coming
