    Hi, I would like to know if it would be possible to embed your map on our Council website so that visitors can search for gardens in the area? Will definitely follow up with our local gardens either way to register on the website, fair few more in the area. Thanks! Michelle, Sustainability Officer at Cairns Regional Council

      Hi Michelle,
      Sorry to take so long in reply…just now found your message!
      It should be easy to embed the map, centred on your Council area…however, it will take some fiddling on this side before you’re good to go.

      In the meantime, you can pass a “pre-loaded” link to people, or embed the whole page into your site. Try this URL:
      http://directory.communitygarden.org.au/find-proximate?field_geofield_distance%5Bdistance%5D=100&field_geofield_distance%5Bunit%5D=6371&field_geofield_distance%5Borigin%5D=Cairns%2C+QLD

      That puts your map at 100km around Cairns. (only one garden listed at the moment!)

      Feel free to drop me a line at: data@communitygarden.org.au

      Kind regards,
      John Brisbin

    I have a woodfired oven that needs a new home – located in Footscray. If a garden has space they are welcome to it. Please contact me for specific details- dan

    Hello. I am wondering how to get the information below out to all community gardens in Sydney.

    I am sorry but I do not know you personally. I got your details off Australian Community Garden web.

    Chris Herden is my name.

    I am a biological agriculture consultant/local organic grower in Hunter Valley. I work with organic growers on eastern seaboard advising, sourcing and selling produce. I have a masters in natural resources. I also have a PDC. I have the following certified organic (ACO), G4, seed potato: Dutch Cream @ $8.50 kg; Superior, Desiree, Kipfler, Royal Blue, King Edward & Russet Burbank @ $9 kg and Pink Fir Apple @ $11 kg. I will deliver. Seed potato, as you know are used for growing, not eating. These seed potatoes are from a generational family farm in Guyra, NSW. The Guyra district is protected by a NSW Government Quarantine Proclamation, which restricts the entry of potatoes into the seed growing areas. This ensures the seed growing districts remain free of pests and diseases such as potato cyst nematode and bacterial wilt.

    Safe Seed Pledge

    Agriculture and seeds provide the basis upon which our lives depend. We must protect this foundation as a safe and genetically stable source for future generations. For the benefit of farmers, gardeners and consumers who want an alternative, we pledge that we do not knowingly buy or sell genetically engineered plants or seeds. Further, we wish to support agricultural progress that leads to healthier soils, genetically diverse agricultural ecosystems and ultimately people and communities.No synthetic chemicals, herbicides, pesticides or fumigants are used on our farms. I make my own compost/fertiliser using local waste inputs, worms, BD preps, indigenous MO’s, local composted manures, have gravity fed dam water, pressure compensated drip lines and conduct regular soil tests.

    Would your grower/permaculture group and/or other contacts be interested in purchasing these potatoes which are in 20 kg bags? There is, on average, 10-15 tubers in a kg. I could make up mixed 20 kg bags for your members to share, if needed.The ideal situation for me is that interest is generated by your members, total monies collected beforehand by central person, you inform me of quantity needed, I drop to a central spot/person, collect COD and members/group collect from there. I plan to come through your area in approximately 3 weeks if I generate a sufficient quantity order. My preferred minimum order is 20kg but I would consider smaller requests.

    I also have ACO certified turmeric @$18.00 a kg. Any quantity oder of this is fine.

    Cheers CH.
