The Key – 21st April 2014

This week

On Monday 21st April we will be enjoying the Easter Monday holiday and so there not be a club meeting.

Last week

Last Monday night we welcomed Walter Steensby from the Community Organic Growers Society, which members and guests found very interesting and, as expected, there were plenty of questions. The issue of terminology was explored, as well as the central role of improved soil quality, the tenure of plots, plot security and their non-commercial requirement. The society is investigating better disabled access and may later bring a submission to us for consideration.

This group has a great website so if growing and eating organic produce interests you, check it out at They also have an updated Facebook page.
