GAF Group - June update

WHEN's Gardens and Food Group sent a big thank you to Miriam Herzfeld and Annie March who have been the enthusiastic coordinators of WHEN-GAF since the group began.  They have helped organise many events and kept the information flowing.  Their contribution to community building is very much appreciated.
Annie and Miriam are stepping down from these roles, but will still be active members.   Margaret Steadman and Ann Hughes will step up into these big shoes – and will be very glad of any other assistance with keeping the group vibrant and active!

Our next event! 
3rd WHEN-GAF Midwinter vegetarian progressive feastSaturday 30 June
Who would like to be involved?  It’s great fun and very little effort is required from any one household.
We have usually had 4 courses:
·         nibbles and children’s activities
·         soup
·         main course
·         dessert and mulled wine
We are looking for offers of
·         good things to eat – offer a contribution to one of the courses
·         places to meet – would you like to host a course?
·         and, of course, people to come along
The soup and main courses locations have been bagsed - one or two more locations would be good.
Please reply to this email if you would like participate.

Other GAF activities
We plan to continue
·         garden help at Lawrenny Court – Annie March will coordinate this
·         produce exchanges – with overflow donated to Second Bite http://secondbite.org/
·         monthly ‘what to plant’ tasks and tips
There are plenty of other ideas including working bees and communal gardening, workshops, garden tours, links with likeminded groups such as the St John’s Community Orchard and South Hobart garden group.  Please let us know if you have ideas or would like to take a role in organising something.
