Regular SAGE events

Working Bees

roughly every 3rd Sunday of the month from 9.30am at the SAGE site.

Work at the SAGE site is continuous, but the monthly working bees are essential to getting large tasks, such as bed preparation, planting, weeding, harvesting and clean-up jobs done.

At around 12.30pm, we gather around for a BYO lunch at the long table. You might like to bring some surplus produce from your own garden to share or swap!

To really get involved, get your hands dirty and learn something, come along to a working bee. Check the calendar for upcoming dates.

SAGE Sunsets

every Friday evening from 5pm at the SAGE site (during daylight savings only)

Come along, join the evening’s activities, bring a picnic and share a relaxed drink after helping with a harvest, or participating in a workshop. Bring the family!

Our wonderful tandoor & pizza oven is now completed, adding even more to this wonderful social gathering.

This is a great way to get to know other SAGE members.
