COMMUNITY | RE:Grow

In our earlier post we mentioned that we were commencing an initiative, titled RE:Grow, to help rehabilitate gardens in flood affected communities. Since then we’ve discovered that Brisbane Organic Growers Inc has instigated a bigger initiative with the same aim. So we’ll be folding in our efforts with BOGI’s garden recovery program. BOGI is encouraging its members to start growing seedlings, transplants and cuttings now. They should be grown in tubes, plastic pots or bags, polystyrene boxes or jiffy pots to be ready for distribution on 19 March 2011. Although planning is in the early stages, it is envisaged that there will be several thousand plants to give away and that the Garden Flood Recovery Day will have information booths and demonstrations on post flood garden restoration, composting, worm farms, producing household vegetables in small containers etc. Further information will be posted to the website as plans become more certain.

We have 200 seedlings planted so far, with more to come, and are growing:

  • Everlasting Daisy
  • Willow Bottlebrush
  • Crimson Bottlebrush
  • Golden Penda
  • Cherry Tomato
  • Rocket
  • and others.

We also have cuttings and transplants of geranium/pelagonium, rhoeo and bromeliad.
