Recommendation Sought


Recommendation sought for reasonably priced house painter.   

And  chook pen sought!

Lost Kitten


Hi all! 

Our kitten, Aswad, hasn't been seen for 24 hours which is very unusual (she's a total house cat). 

She's black with an orange collar, though she might have unclipped it because she's cheeky like that. 

If you see her around please give us a call on 0434 497 456. She's hopefully hanging around Hutchison place, as that's where we live. 

Photos below!

Thanks so much, 




We are looking for a house-sitter and pet-feeder for our lovely 4-bedroom home in West Preston from 12 - 26 July.  House is warm and comfortable and fairly self-explanatory, but 2 cats, 5 chickens, 4 rabbits and 1 guinea pig need more attention.  

Txt 0408 668 882 for more info.



Wanted: moving boxes.

If you have moving boxes that you would like to get rid off, I would be very grateful for them!

Food Forest

Untitled-2Winter Food Forest Fun in West Brunswick (Sun 26th)

Next Sunday 26th June from 11am-3pm down at the West Brunswick Community Garden & Food Forest we've got a bit of a thing going on and we'd love you to come along and get involved. 

Everyone's welcome!

What's happening:

Learn about pruning (Karen Sutherland from Edible Eden Design will be helping us out!!), planting and composting. 

Put your new (or rusty or refreshed) skills to use as we prune the trees in the food forest and plant out the area near our pistachio trees with lots of edibles.

By the time you leave you'll know something you didn't know before, be warmed up, know some great people see a big difference in the food forest and help make it ready for the coming Spring.

What to bring:

There will be tea/coffee and some tools but:
  • Bring something to share for lunch (we have fantastic shared lunches!)
  • If you're a pruner bring your secateurs
  • If you have some gloves bring them too
  • Obviously you live in Melbourne so you know what to wear

See you there.

If you have any enquiries, please get in touch
