Get into your garden and grow your food
Join the merry band of folk who enjoy growing their own foods for cooking and providing healthier meals for their families. It's on at the Logan Hyperdome Library in April.
In years gone by many folk grew their own fruit and vegetables. I recall a life in Adelaide many years ago, when families grew oranges and lemons, summer fruits, vegetables and more. Summer holidays were busy preserving the apricots, peaches, and making jams. Few families do that these day, but there is an increased interest in growing one's own foods.
Annette McFarlane is well known for her gardening advice on the ABC and events around Queensland, where she imparts her not inconsiderable knowledge about growing in the home garden, and especially for one's cooking. She joins forces with Alison Alexander, a well known "Foodie" for a workshop at the Logan Hyperdome Library on April 22nd, from 10 am to 11.45 am, where they hope to inspire the audience to set forth and grow their own foods for the family.

It promises to be an enjoyable and fun event with much learning. Gardening notes and recipes will be provided – but it wouldn't hurt to take a notepad and pen.
