Garden Party

This is just a reminder about the Garden Party this Sunday at Rea Lands Park.

The weather is forecast to be 20˚C and very spring-like, so bring a picnic and rug, your loved ones and come on down!

There was a bit of a rush on the seedlings we had for sale yesterday so not everybody got what they needed. Florian will have a seedling stall at the Sunday market this week so maybe you could pick some up some from him then. Alternatively, please order some (see list here) through HRN and they will probably be here next Wednesday with bulk foods.

Don't forget that this Thursday, November 3rd we'll be watching Juliette of the Herbs at the Savoia at 7.30pm. Regular menu available.

See you Sunday, folks!

Local happenings

Hey all, it seems that a lot of us have been really flat of late but there a bunch of things happening to go to that could get us smiling again. Try some of these...

This Saturday pop up to Jubilee Lake between 12 and 3pm to celebrate the new lessee of the Jubilee Lake Caravan Park - a residents' co-operative! Congratulations Hepburn Shire for giving them the lease! HRN will have a stall there.

Paul Hawken
If you want to hear Paul Hawken, he will be in Bendigo October 28th as guest of the Bendigo Sustainability Group. Email us if you want to be part of a table. (It is expensive I know but hey, it could be worth it.) We will be car pooling across.

Then, Daylesford Community Gardeners are hosting a garden party Sunday October 30 between 10 and 3pm. Oh what fun! Bring a picnic or enjoy some Ego Culinaria tucker while reclining on the grass with friends.

Also, starting in November are a series of bicycle maintenance workshops at the Neighbourhood House between 2 and 4pm on the last three Saturdays. Great idea if you have an old bike you would like to zip into shape for Critical Mass (last Friday of the month at 5pm at the Daylesford Primary School).

And Keeping it Local: Local Wardrobe is a nice little clip on local clothing, something I neglected when Ken Warren asked the question about transitioning and local clothing at a recent film night. Here is what a small group is doing.

And coming film night Juliette of the Herbs and a community dinner.
