Havn't seen tantra post for a while so I thought i'd just remind anyone in adelaide that the meetups happen on the second sunday of each month and the adelaide botanical gardens. Next one is Jan 8th.
The world is like a ride in an amusement park. And when you choose to go on it, you think it's real because that's how powerful our minds are. And the ride goes up and down and round and round. It has thrills and chills and it's very brightly coloured and it's very loud and it's fun, for a while. Some people have been on the ride for a long time and they begin to question, is this real, or is this just a ride? And other people have remembered, and they come back to us, they say, "Hey - don't worry, don't be afraid, ever, because, this is just a ride... bill hicks

*Bump* Just a Reminder to all adelaidean plant heads that the next meet will be on the 14th of May :) had a great time at the last meet, i was a bit sleep deprived and a lil quiet due to a huge one the nite before still a excellant day and turn out :D . Hopefully we will discuss EGA transportation etc in more depth also - a fair number of ppl are interested in going so we should have a decent sized crew to attend.

Spent Anzac day chilling at the Bot Gardens and picked up 3 heimia plants and a lobelia laxiflora all for $5 each all very healthy and looking great, they have some really cool ethnos forsale there now and then keep an eye out :wink:

does anyone know where the Goji berry tree is (Lycium Chinense I believe) in the Botanic gardens? I was really impressed with the taste when I tried them a few weeks ago.

Was great to finally meet you Ronny, was awesome the brief chat we did have and hope our paths cross again in the near future, look forward to it.

And for all those fantastically charged plant beings the next meet is on the 8th October 12 Noon at the Adelaide botanical gardens kiosk. Will hopefully have some info printed out on Peruvian Curanderos to hand out by then and also some of Gomoas most Excellant Rivea Corymbosa seeds. Hope most you guys n gals can make it :wink:
