On December 3rd we managed to squeeze one last afternoon swap in before the silly season set in. Set under a marquee in the beautifully planned garden of a Permaculture Sydney North member, attendees sipped refreshing homemade cordial (made using garden ingredients), tips and recipes were exchanged, and the owner conducted a tour. The garden buzzed with blue banded bees, new figs were spotted, hot rasperries were eaten straight from the bush and all marveled at the beautiful pomegranates on their way.
A “controlled raid of the garden’ also took place during the tour where cuttings of plants were shared. There was a particularly diverse range of produce, plants and goods at this swap with some listed below.
Homemade Air freshener
Fruit salad plant
Blue flowered lettuce seeds
Fruit salad water
