An exciting scheme to match garden owners who have unused garden space to enthusiastic growers who don’t have gardens. There is even advice available for beginners.
Use your spare garden space more productively by agreeing to let someone else use it and you both share in the produce. Nothing tastes better than freshly picked vegetables.

STOP PRESS--CBC Meeting 18 March 6pm re Druitt Tree felling is DEFERRED

The Council's Felling of protected Druitt Trees and its negotiations with the Developer was to go to its own Audit and Scrutiny Committee meeting Tuesday 18th.

The Council has just issued a statement saying that as there has been an application for a Judicial Review of this Matter they have deferred this meeting.

The 174 page Report to the A&S Committee owns up to a number of very serious 'errors', and campaigners have submitted detailed questions about the events considered, and about many omissions and inconsistencies in the Report.

TPP: Poison for Community Resilience

The past couple of decades of globalization have been a disaster for planetary ecosystems, indigenous peoples, and most middle-class citizens, but a gravy train for big investors, investment bankers, and managers of transnational corporations. This unprecedented expansion of international trade was driven by the convergence of key resources, developments, and inventions: cheap oil, satellite communications, container ships, computerized monitoring of inventories, the flourishing of multinational corporations, the proliferation of liberal trade treaties (including NAFTA), and the emergence of transnational bodies such as the World Trade Organization.

Reprieve for Druitt Trees but placement of construction compound on the Gardens and closure of footpath to go ahead.

Trees in Druitt Gardens threatened by a controversial development of retirement flats were given a reprieve after a nail-biting 6 to 5 vote by the Planning Committee. 450 letters opposed the tree works and the meeting had standing room only.
