Backyard Farming in the Upper Mountains and surrounds

by Nicola

Something new and exciting is going on in the Upper Mountains:

Serious backyard farmers and wannabes meet on a regular basis to
learn, build, swap and chat.
Ever tried to winnow grain? Or wondered why your broccoli does not set heads?
Harvested seeds for the whole neighbourhood or are you searching for a fruit press?
Your chicken don’t lay properly or you want to build a tool you cannot do on your own?
You think bees are challenging and soil tests are obscure chemistry or you always wanted to forage.
Certainly there’s someone who knows a bit.

Come to our first meeting on Sunday, the 5th of October 2-4 pm Upper Mountains Community Garden,
Harold Hodgson Park, 10 Victoria Street, Katoomba and have a chat over a cup of tea. Contributions to an afternoon tea welcome. This first meeting is about how to organize the group, gathering ideas and a short talk about corn. All welcome!
