Gardening at New Farm Library

No, you don’t actually have to turn up there with your shovel and hoe – but If you are a gardener and live in the New Farm area of Brisbane I encourage you to pop into  New Farm Library and introduce yourself to the team leader Tatiana.

Tatiana is a mad keen gardener.

She started an informal Garden Group at the library at the beginning of the year.  We meet on the second Friday of each month at 3pm in the appropriately named “Garden Room” which overlooks the beautiful New Farm Park.  Tatiana leads the group but we all have something to say!  We swap seeds, advice, and our gardening experiences. If you are a new gardener, perhaps with just a balcony, doesn’t matter, we are all the same, we love to dig in the dirt and watch things grow. The next meeting is tomorrow, Friday 13th April at 3pm.

And for a real treat on Saturday 14th April Annette McFarlane ABC radio presenter is holding a workshop at the library on Growing New Plants from Seeds and Cuttings. I have been to a few of Annette’s workshops and they are always fascinating, hands-on and full of information. If you have a plant that is diseased and you are worried about it, take along a leaf or a clipping and Annette will give you helpful advice. If you want to attend this workshop it’s at New Farm Library from 11am to 2pm on Saturday 14th April. I know I am repeating myself but no point in talking about it if you don’t have all the info. You can book this workshop by telephoning Brisbane City Council on (07) 3403 8888 or speak to the library direct on (07) 3403 1062. And it’s free. So how good’s that.

Gotta go scrub my nails. Planted potatoes this morning.
