Matt’s blitz- 28th May(to suit his return from the uk and the moon cycle)
Aidan’s blitz- 25th June.
May-Ring updated us on the International Permaculture Day planning, and it was unanimously decided that there was no ongoing interest in the seed saving collection box as it seems each individual has their own collection and just puts a callout to the the collective group when in need of a particular seed, so the seed saving collection has been left by the wayside. We talked about the oppurtunity to have a stall at the Growers Green market at South Fremantle Primary and it was decided that we would have a trial run day on the 24th April. Dan’s garden was added to the list of showcase gardens and Jodie informed us that she had discussed it with Sparkles who had decided she was not interested in being on that list.
