I'll be around for the 22nd, I'm in the Brisbane area now officially.

So is it a laid back swap or a working bee of some sort??

Yeah nothink it was cassava we all got bits of from shortly, unless you were thinking of something else. Mine all rotted before rooting unfortunately...I suck at propagating things by cutting :(

Endorfinder, good to hear you're in the Brizzle! It's usually a very laid back affair. Don't even know if I'd call it a swap meet, it's usually more of a plant potluck if I had to describe it haha. Although obviously trades and stuff are cool too and happen, but I don't think anyone's keeping score. More of a plant-sharing and shit-talking extravaganza.

so gtarman i should bring a plant or two, other than that we just shoot the shit? sounds so tame compared to meetups i'm used to ! ;)

doublebenno, I've just moved into a new place that requires a lot of jungle clearing so I'm calling dibs :)

are you aware of the brisbane permaculture society which does "blitz" working bees on peoples' houses? apparently once you've helped with 2 other (1 day) blitzes you're eligible for one of your own. being permaculture folk we're not just talking plants but also chicken runs, bee hives, compost heaps, drainage, crop rotation, etc etc :)

@prier I live a couple of k's from mt coot-tha buy haven't been for 3-5 years (and never their "botanical gardens"), lemme know if you like the idea of a blind guide leading a blind outsider ;) don't forget the botanical gardens in the city, they're much easy to get to by public transport etc (they're right down the south-east extreme of the city.

Not going to be easy with a very laid back afternoon situation, but we'll see what we can do eh?

I think we generally try to keep the meets more on the laid back side so as not to put off members who might otherwise not come along, and also not to draw unwanted attention of the wrong sort to our little community is all

And yeah bring as many or as few plants/seeds etc as you like :)

My phone is nothing short of Fucked, this situation seems unlikely to resolve itself before sunday. So apologies to those whose calls/messages I've ignored, pls message me regarding this weekend if there's any secret squirrel shizzle I need to know about.

Oh and was it mt coot-tha? Where do you go, like slaughter falls down the bottom or near the channel 7 antenna or what? :P
