APRIL FIELD DAY:
Saturday April 9th
10 Hawthorne st
Mike and Sue Lorraine are foundation members of the Blue Mountains and Nepean Herb Group and lived in the Blue Mountains for 40 years growing hundreds of herbs on their property.
Mike and Sue moved to their current property on a 644 square metre block in September 2021. After a permaculture assessment by Brett Cooper from Limestone Permaculture, work on their plans began.
A bindi covered front yard transformed into a cottage garden and the addition of raised garden beds for vegetables, are some of what they have achieved already.
Mike and Sue are HOGS members, with Mike joining the committee this year.
As well as enjoying a tour of their garden, there will be a short working bee to assist Mike and Sue with a few tasks around their garden.
Join us for the opportunity to find out what two of our HOGS members and long time gardening enthusiasts are up to in their garden.
