Hi all, here are the details about the soil additive used at the Jjaras farm gate market garden. The product is Humus plus 4 and is distributed by Jeff Clark. http://humusplus4.com.au/ A truck load is 30 tonnes (which is about 30 cubic metres). It is possible to purchase a cubic metre for $120 a tonne picked up, but Jeff would prefer the group to buy a truck load cooperatively. This will cost about $2200.00.
It is beyond the scope of the project to facilitate this, but I hope you find a way to work together to obtain the product if you wish.

Hi Attendee's - Welcome!, Just catching up before next Saturday’s big day out. We are meeting at the farm of Lucas and Alexandra Farmer at 9.00am. They live at 110 Williams Road Woodleigh. Williams Road is off St Heliers road, and is a no through road (despite what google maps says!) You must drive in from St Heliers Road. St Heliers road runs from the South Gippsland Hwy between Loch and Nyora, and from the Bass Hwy at the Gurdies via the Gurdies - St Heliers road and the Nyora - St Heliers Road. Lucas’s house is the fourth house on the RHS on Williams Road next to a big playground. Drive down the driveway and over the dam, turn left and go 100 m. before parking. We will be there at 9.00am sharp. I have maps and directions to the next properties with me. Look forward to seeing you on Sat. Cheers, Jill
