Growing Garlic for profit

Growing Garlic for profit

Garlic is well suited to growing as a small or micro commercial crop. You can achieve a profit on much less than 1000 sq metres.  Garlic has a small footprint and its excellent capacity for organic and environmentally beneficial growing methods make it ideal for the small land holder or homesteader to plant for profit. We will also look at the range of selling opportunities available to the small or micro commercial grower.

Keeping healthy Backyard Chickens

  • 34 Busby Street South Bathurst, NSW, 2795 Australia (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Meeting the nutritional needs of your backyard chickens isn't as simple as it sounds. Our domesticated chickens need excellent nutrition to make delicious, nutrient dense eggs and meat. Many poultry keepers rely on pelleted feeds many of which don't meeting the optimal nutrient requirements.  Keepers find they feed scratch mixes with grain and seed selections most of which the birds ignore. Can we do better? Yes, and for a lower cost, without the use of chemicals or pesticides.

The Universe Story: Our Story

The Universe Story: Our Story

On the third Wednesday of each month, Sr Patricia Powell rsm leads a discussion about our Common Home, Planet Earth, against the backdrop of the universe story. The universe came into existence 15.7 billion years ago and our planet formed 5 billion years ago in a solar system on the edge of the Milky Way Galaxy. The emergence of life on the planet, with all its variety and complexity locates our species on an extraordinary “Family Tree”. These discussions provide a safe space where participantscan ask questions and share insights; appreciate the interconnectedness of all creation; evaluate the kind of civilization we have made; consider how we might organize our society into the future; reflect on how we make meaning and articulate our spiritual beliefs; and imagine how we might reinvent ourselves as human beings and our role on the planet and in the universe. Input from contemporary scientists, cosmologists and spiritual leaders enrich the discussions.

The sessions are $10 and run from 7.00pm – 9.00pm
