BAAG will once again be supporting the Garden Releaf program in 2019 with Garden Releaf day on Sunday March 24. Focusing on the benefits of plants and gardens to enrich our lives, BAAG will be exploding with gardening ideas. The aim is to encourage people to get into their garden and get planting.
Get involved in a local community garden!
This year Bulleen Art & Garden will be holding a talk for people who would like to get involved in gardening, but who don’t have a garden of their own, as well as those who have thought about getting involved in a local community garden.
Marina Bistrin from MacLeod Organic Community Garden will be at Bulleen Art & Garden on Sunday 24th March at 11am to speak about what Community Gardens are in our local area, and how you can become involved.
Marina is very knowledgeable and is actively involved in many of the Community Gardens in our local area, and has a keen interest in cold composting and keeping things out of landfill. You may have heard of her if you subscribe to Local Food Connect, another valuable resource for local food and local gardens in our area, as she has had some articles published under the heading “Marina’s Musings”.
Half price blueberries all weekend!
All Blueberries at BAAG will be 50% off all weekend, with $1 from each Blueberry sold going directly to Beyond Blue. We will also be accepting donations for the talk and our gift wrapping service.
