Spring Gathering

Our Spring gathering is at Catherine & Lyndon's five acre block in Okato.  Catherine and Lyndon have added, apple trees, citrus trees, feijoas, and much more to an already productive five acres.  The previous owner had turned bare paddocks into a productive haven, including fruit trees, timber trees, native bush and food crops.  Also, Catherine and Lyndon are suppliers for Ooooby Taranaki.  Here is more information about their land -which includes a photo of a very impressive tamarillo tree.

Our Spring Gathering Conversation is all about Beans. There are so many different varieties of heritage beans in the seed bank it will be great to have a conversation about how they should be eaten, whole, shelled, dried and also the story behind the bean.  Please bring along any spare heritage beans and also your bean stories too.

Bring along seed to clean, seed to swap and seed saving questions and ideas.  The seed bank will be there for seed swapping too!  Please bring a plate for afternoon tea and a gold coin donation is always appreciated to help towards running costs of the seed banks Taranaki-wide.

At: Catherine & Lyndon's Garden - Okato. 62, Kaihihi Road Upper, Okato.  Please park on road or in the domain opposite our land.
Cost: gold-coin donation appreciated
