Hi Ross,

Thanks for all the information!
I would like to get involved, but tomorrow actually I will not be in Kits so will not be able to join the seed packet work party. I will keep up to date with the events page though and hopefully join you at the next opportunity.

Hope you had a good day gardening today - the weather was beautiful! =)

Cheers!

Hi Ross,

Thanks for the message! I would definitely be interested in hearing more about the gardening opportunities. And as for this Sunday, I'm not sure if I would be able to help, but if you could send me some more info, maybe I could drop by for a bit?

Thanks very much,
Kasia
