Hello and welcome to the October newsletter!
Spring is definitely upon us - with some warmer days and a bit of rain - it's the usual mixture for this time of year. Gardens are responding with lots of flowers, growth - and a bit of confusion with plants a bit unsure at times... but that's the joy of gardening! We've certainly had a busy month @ GLSC. Thank you to our lovely customers who keep on coming back; supporting us and sharing their love of gardening. Did you get along to the Kalamunda Garden Festival on the 3rd of September? Speaking of rainy weather - the day & night before the festival we had HEAPS of rain; so much so that it turned Stirk Park (the venue) into a bit of a mud pit. We got an urgent call from Andrew & Amanda the night before looking for help to provide something on the ground to help. So Paul was up early, and took up two truckloads of woodchip mulch to the site. Which was a great idea until he got bogged... But thanks to many hands helping, and handy 4WD tows available - it all worked out in the end. The day itself had a mix of rain and sunshine - but it didn't dampen the spirits of those that attended. If you missed out, the next Festival is scheduled for Sunday, 3rd December. Keep an eye on our Facebook page as we will have a competition running a little closer to the time to win FREE passes!
Over the long weekend just passed, Paul & I were down in Margaret River for a dance festival. It gave us the opportunity to call into our local retail outlets in Margaret River and Busselton, and do some product training with Mitre 10 Margaret River (who carry our Square Foot Mix, Charlie Charcoal & Vegetable Concentrate). Nutrien Ag Margaret River carry our Premium Potting Mix, Vegetable Mix and Certified Organic compost. We have a growing number of retail outlets around the State - with new outlets coming onboard all the time (Karratha - I'm looking at YOU!) See the bottom of this newsletter for our list of outlets where you can track down GLSC goodies closer to home. Whilst in Margs, we had the opportunity to look around Fair Harvest Permaculture - which is a fabulous farm & permaculture education centre, offering seasonal accommodation and a range of course. Keep an eye out for various workshops there in the future. We also visited a friend who's moved into the Witchcliffe Ecovillage; so got to see first hand the development of that site and how it's coming along. Some amazing gardens, that's for sure!
October is GLSC's birthday month, 22 years since Paul & I took over The (then) Gaia Centre on Farrall Road. A few things have changed since those days; but at the core we're still about helping people have a great garden!
See you soon @ GLSC!
