Dear Jeannette and colleagues,

On behalf of the Ngara Institute, I would like to offer my warmest congratulations on the tenth anniversary of the Mullumbimby Community Gardens. The Gardens are a magnificent achievement and a credit to all those involved over the years. They have become emblematic of Mullumbimby’s commitment to localisation and regenerative practices. They are also very beautiful!

But the gardens symbolise much more than this. They are part of a global environmental justice movement that is seeking to create a different way of life based on peace, justice and ecological regeneration. The gardens are a shining example of what can be achieved when a few committed people get together to create a place of wisdom, wonder and utility. My partner and I walked around the gardens yesterday and we marvelled at what we saw.

So once again, congratulations to everyone involved and I look forward to the twentieth anniversary!

Best wishes,

*keeping our data bases up-to-date,
*answering and forwarding on emails,

HOT COMPOSTING WORKSHOP with Diane Hart
Saturday July 28th
10am -1pm
Mullumbimby Community Garden
156 Stuart St, Mullumbimby

$10/$5conc
Members Free

Come and keep warm in July and help us try and make the
BIGGEST HOT COMPOST HEAP IN THE WORLD with local horticulturist Diane Hart.

Get all of her HOT TIPS on how to make it - what to put in and what to leave out and how to turn waste into wonder.

We need as many people as we can get to bring their GREEN WASTE and help turn lovely loads of RUBBISH into BLACK GOLD. The soil is already saying THANK YOU.

EVERY SINGLE DAY tons of valuable organic material are thrown away by households and food outlets in Byron Shire – which then goes to the tip. So let’s start collecting it and HOT COMPOST it into something useful.

WE NEED YOU TO BRING lots of bags, boxes and bins full of:

• Horse manure, stable and chook pen sweepings.
• Lawn clippings ( not sprayed)
• Dried grass
• Leaves
• Food scraps (no more than 3 days old please and no meat, fish or dairy)
• Coffee grounds (café’s are happy for you to collect if you take them a bucket – Australians throw away 3,000 tons each year!)
• Juicing pulp from café’s (same, take them a bucket and collect)
• Comfrey and lemon grass prunings
• Hair from hairdressers (clean waste please)

WE’VE GOT THE SPACE, NOW WE JUST NEED YOU!!
