Here's the latest news from the Scenic Rim Guide.
The Summer Mt Alford Artisan's Market is being held on Saturday 2nd December from 9am to 3pm. Location: Mt Alford Hall - 942 Reckumpilla St - Mt Alford 4310 (10 mins from Boonah)
There will be music, food and drinks available and market stalls offering quality items focusing on upcycled, handmade and local artists.
The previous markets have been a great success so mark it in your diary and come and visit the Scenic Rim on the weekend.
While you are here - visit the Scenic Rim Brewery which is just across the road.

Mt Alford now has a micro brewery. You can also purchase coffee and light meals - dine inside or outside on the deck.
Next time you take a drive to the Scenic Rim, call out to Mt Alford and see our newly renovated store um.. brewery :)
Information on Women's and Men's Fitness Classes in the Scenic Rim, including Zumba, Yoga, Pilates, Mens classes and more
I attended a community meeting tonight to discuss keeping the Scenic Rim Coal & Coal Seam Gas (CSG) Free.
It was good to see the REAL information and not the glossy crap the politicians pass off in the way of advertising. Although it's very sad that communities have to fight against something that makes no sense for Australia.
Why on earth would we CHOOSE to do this to our land - our soil, our water, our health?
If you live in the city or in a region not directly affected by CSG you WILL still be impacted. This isn't just a farming issue - it affects everyone. I urge you to get some information - to help the wonderful and amazing volunteers and do SOMETHING. Buy a sticker, attend a meeting, make a donation... And say NO TO CSG.
Keep the Scenic Rim Scenic - and Australia to for that matter!

I met some lovely ladies from Beau Park Horse Rescue and Rehab this morning. As a horse owner myself I am in awe of people who care so much for these beautiful animals.
Rescuing and rehabilitating horses takes a lot of time, work and money.
Please check out the website and if there is any way you can help, please do so :)

Not looking very green outside at the moment. Lawns are brown but it won't be long before they're soaking up the spring sunshine and turning green once again.
If you're getting frost on your lawn, don't walk on it until the frost has thawed or you could damage your lawn.
Enjoy your winter garden and frosty mornings (personally I'm looking forward to Spring!)
These rains are keeping the lawns growing. Soon it should be time for them to take a "growing" break.
If you want a great lawn, you need to look after the soil. Make sure you keep the moisture up - if you can't get a screwdriver into the soil, you aren't watering anyhwere near enough. Dead spots on the lawn are also a red light. Use Water Crystals to retain more water in the soil. There are products you can put on the lawn or mix in with the soil if you are planting new lawn.
Feeding your lawn. Use an organic fertilizer. Don't put synthetic products on your lawn - your soil is alive but it won't be for long if you don't look after it.
Weed and Feed. You shouldn't need it. Keep your lawns mowed so weeds don't go to seed. Hand weed any that have got out of control (or get the kids to earn their pocket money). If your lawn has too many weeds, you'll need to look if there is another reason for it.
If you need mowing for larger blocks - give Boonah Landscaping a call :)
If you live in the Scenic Rim, if you visit the Scenic Rim - you MUST visit this site.
Mt Barney is a gorgeous tourist location and is now threatened with coal mining.
Check out the website to see what it's all about and what you can do to try to stop it.
There is a meeting this Wednesday, 23 March 2011 - if you could make it, it would be fantastic.
If you have a large yard or small acreage it can take HOURS to mow your lawn, even with a ride on mower.
A zero turn lawnmower with a wide cutting width can cut this time down considerably.
Get your weekends back and call Boonah Landscaping to mow that block for you.
