This formation meeting is on at Community College, 227 Howick St, Bathurst at 5.30pm on 28 October 2010
Now is the time to plant broad beans in Bathurst. Nominal time for a crop is 4 months, so planting in June should give a crop in October. Cropping needs to be finished before the weather gets too hot, so planting time is from June to August.
Quantity - for a family of 4, 1 packet of seeds should be about right. 50 to 60 g of seed will be about 30 to 40 seeds. I suggest you divide them into 2 (or 3) batches for planting in June and July (and August).
Seeds are usually planted 25 cm apart in a double row.
The federal budget has been proclaimed and the opposition has predictably poored scorn on it.
Mr. Rudd does not seem to have been given the bounce from it he may have hoped and he is still being roundly criticised for his abandoning of the government's proposes Emissions Trading Scheme. Having trumpeted so loudly that this was the great moral challenge of our time and then to have been so critical of the opposition for not embracing it - nay it was an act of political cowardice to do so, he then so glibly walked away from it himself.

I really love mushrooms and after the recent rain they are cropping up everywhere except my backyard. How can I get them to grow there.
I am a fibre and meat producer, but have some good land that I think could lend itself to some sort of horticulture.
Where should I start with meeting up with other local producers and recommendations of horticultural practices and marketing to get me started?
