Spring is Here

Urrbrae High will hold its Old Barn market this Saturday morning (check out the calender for details).

Last month the students had espaliered apple and pear fruit trees for sale.
The students do such great things with the school produce.

I hope you enjoy the photo of these young alpacas in the Urrbrae paddocks.
The new program for the Adelaide Botanic Gardens (A Season in The Gardens Spring) is waiting for you, just click on the link.

There are lots of great events and talks, so check out the program and book in early.

There is even a pram stroll for our newest seedsaver member and his mum.

Well, warm days have arrived and so our daily patterns of garden care change to mulching and the little watering regulations allow.

Here is one of the walks offered in October:

From Earth to Plate
