3 years ago this blog did not exist, I had never used a computer and most of us seedsavers did not know each other.

After 3 years of determined “you can do it” coaching from Kate and Bob, I can now use this amazing computer to at least write this.

Everyday people from all over the world visit this site as the google information on gardening, health or eco news.

Some of the most popular topics are daikon recipes, asian greens, water plants, dry gardens,

hydroponics, the list goes on and on.

The 1st time I met Kate she exclaimed loudly,”you cannot meet without me!”

I now understand what she meant, she did not want to miss even one of our seedsavers gatherings. She wanted to know what we were all growing and how we were preparing the different veggies and herbs.

Her passion for gardening has been contagious as she exclaims “we must go to Tony Scarfo’s” or Nirvana Farm or all the other amazing visits she has organised for us.

And all our visits have been great fun and really interesting.

Kate has encouraged us to save seeds and share our gardens and produce with each other.

So for keeping this blog alive, for organizing and emailing us about events and all your private home visits to all our gardens, We THANK YOU KATE.

We have also become friends with many other gardening folk from all over the world.

We have been to visit some amazing organic farms around Adelaide and met many interesting people.

We have all either done Diana’s Seeds for Health Gardening Course or have been guest speakers.

Some of us continue to look after the Fern Avenue Cancer Care plot between courses and Cath takes excess produce to Cancer Care. We also prepare healthy soup or quiches for lunch after Diana’s classes.

We meet 3 or 4 times a year to swap seeds and produce and we have great fun together.

Cath has organized a trip to Joyeta next weekend, we will have a shared lunch and once again chatter about our gardens, the wonderful rain we have had and everything else we are doing.

I shall notify you about a visit to a herb farm and we shall organize a seed swap soon.
