From Transition Shire Wingecarribee comes a special recommendation for Eco-topia, the 5th National School & Community Garden Gathering, which opens on Wednesday evening 10 October and runs till Sunday 14 October (Click for bookings).
Special guest speaker is Roberto Perez, from Havana, Cuba, who appeared in the popular film, The Power of Community. Other speakers include Costa Georgiadis, host of Gardening Australia on the ABC, and John Brisbin leading a session called Singing Up the Australian Community Gardens Month — sounds entertaining.
Southern Highlanders might particularly like Thursday’s session about the Bundanoon Community Garden.
You need to book your place, and you can book for the whole event (if you’re quick) or for days or sessions. Bookings at http://events.communitygarden.org.au/2012/10/06/surprise-appearance/#more.
The gathering is organised by the Australian City Farms and Community Gardens Network.
