JAPICKLES workshop

Hi Gardeners,
The 3rd Saturday each month sees our Yackandandah Community Garden alive with activity.

From 9:30 am there's the Produce Swap. This month we had oranges, grapefruit, eggs, mushrooms, raspberry canes and some seedlings on the table. Drop in next month to see what's available or to add something to the swap.

At 10 we take a tour round the garden discussing what's happening here and at home. Lots of discussion of garden problems, ideas and suggestions.

At 10:30 the monthly workshop starts. This month we had Yack resident, Sachi talking about Japanese style pickles and showing us how it's done.

Sachi spoke passionately about the importance of human gut health and said that pickled and fermented foods can help keep plenty of beneficial bacteria in our digestive tracts. 17 people from Yackandandah and surrounding areas booked in for this workshop. They all enjoyed the tasting and got to take some pickles home to help get them started with their own simple Japanese style pickling.

We have invited Plastic Wise Yackandandah to present our July workshop with discussion and ideas on alternatives to plastic. Even if you don't intend to go cold turkey, this should help us all to start getting off the plastic wagon. - Saturday July 15 at 10:30am

Don't forget our regular Garden Gathering. Every Saturday morning 9:30am to 10:30am. Discuss garden ideas, problems and solutions and help look after the garden.

  1. This Garden Gathering project is actually really fun. I attended one of these yesterday with my Granny and was surprised to see how much good work is happening around us.
