Fantastic Fundraising at Lane Cove Fair

The Permapatch stall in Sustainability Lane at Lane Cove Fair this year was as fabulous as ever with many people stopping by to talk about the state of the planet, how to grow perfect strawberries and everything else in between. No honey yet this year, but we sold jars of gorgeous lemon butter and marmalade made by lovely members Gary and Pauline. Also lots of large plants (thanks Jo) and many seedlings (thanks Gary and Lian Choo) grown at Permapatch, with no pesticides or sprays of course. Also the seedlings from Austral Organic Seedlings that always leap out of the ground and provide us with tomato and basil sauce for the rest of the year, and other delicious delights. We were very excited to make $600 for the garden, which is a record stall profit to date. Hopefully, this will not be our last stall, with the garden's future very uncertain at the moment. Watch this space. Come to the AGM on Sunday and find out the very latest news on this, plus sharing a pizza from our own woodfired oven and catching up with friends. Volunteer for a position on the committee next year and get more involved in this great project.
