Tonight I'm looking forward to celebrating Tamz’ and my birthdays at the Butterfly Club in South Melbourne, we’re getting all dolled up to see a show and then do dinner. Can’t wait!
It seems that from August onwards our life gets much more social – and with events like these two coming up – it’s easy to see why! There’s a couple of great local events coming up in the next few months – book quickly because these ones are popular! I’ll see you there…
#1 Local Edible Gardens Tour - 8 November 1pm - 4pm
Following the success of the inaugural Open Garden Day Tour in 2008, this local tour gives a sneak-peak into what locals in Maribyrnong are doing with their backyards and front yards. From the traditional patch beyond the Hills Hoist, to the edible urban jungle in a recycled wonderland - you’re bound to see gardens that are full of ideas to inspire you to dig-up your lawn and plant you own piece of sustainable paradise. Bookings are essential. Departure details provided upon booking. Limited bus-seats available.
