We have been meeting monthly for about a year and have made BUCKET LOADS of great jams, pickles, chutneys, cordials, sauces and all manner of food in jars!
We recently applied to the council for a grant and got it - so the jam n pickle club is on it's way to a whole new level....I hope it doesn't change too much - it is lovely and simple now, and as the name states, that's how we want to keep it.
This monday we decided to try a seed swapping table and it was a veritable treasure trove of wonders! We had quandong (native peach) seeds from up north, all sort of fruit and vegie seeds collected from people's gardens, cuttings, seedlings and excess produce for sale or swap. A fantastic way of getting tried and true local stuff to plant in the garden.
