Subject: An Invitation to visit my Backyard

  A reminder that I'm having a  'Backyard Self-Sufficiency Workshop' in my own backyard in St Marys.  You are welcome to come along. (See details below).

Other Payment Options: I've also set-up some alternative ways to pay as using a credit card on-line is not to everyone's liking (see payment options below).
Alternative Date: I've also set another date as some people have expressed disappointment they are not available on the allocated day - so if Sunday 20 September is more suitable please respond via email and if numbers are sufficient I'll organise a booking link.

Garden Spray Recipe: Last email I forgot to include the recipe for the Soap Spray - you'll find it listed below.  Happy gardening!

Don't miss out!  Here's one of the recipes from the workshop:

Recipe: Soap-based Garden Spray
Make up a mixture of 100g grated soap dissolved in 300ml boiling water – blend and leave to cool to form a thick jelly. Add 8 litres of hot water and dissolve. Pour into recycled spray bottles and spray onto garden plants. To make the spray a more effective insect repellent soak garlic cloves and hot fresh chilli in the mixture before using. (Tie into a small bag so that it is easier to remove – do not use crushed or powdered chilli/garlic as it will block the sprayer). Two tablespoons of eucalyptus oil may also be added. (This mix will need to be used more frequently then chemically based sprays – about once fortnightly – in order to be effective. Suited to insects such as white-fly, aphids, caterpillars, etc.).
