Last week in Ligaya Garden #8 and #9


So much is happening, both here and outhere in the big world that we thought it worth doing a little catchup every Sunday and publish it on a Monday, Oz time. All of the posts will be listed here on this page for your elucidation and convenience. I know, I didn’t write an update last…

Last week in Ligaya Garden #7


So much is happening, both here and outhere in the big world that we thought it worth doing a little catchup every Sunday and publish it on a Monday, Oz time. All of the posts will be listed here on this page for your elucidation and convenience. This week was pretty slow from the point…

Helping hands around Gawler #2 Free Food Thursday


I definitely like free things, so, over the next couple of weeks, I’m going around investigating the free stuff around Gawler. These will be things that you don’t need to sign up for, just visit anonymously. Being typically me, my focus is on free food and information. I’ll steer away from money though. These posts…

2019?


What’s the New Year going to bring at Ligaya Garden? It’ll be a change to have the construction work and garden building finished. There’s always little things to do and seasonal jobs that need our attention but the heavy work is done (‘you’ve said that before`! mutters Marlon). The most urgent ‘big’ job remaining is…

Some changes


We’ve just upgraded our WordPress plan so we can improve our website. You may notice some changes to the basic, relaxed format we’ve used (I’m graphically challenged lol). Marlon has taken over doing the graphics and visuals, so we’re expecting some great improvements there.  I’ll still be doing content and coding. The biggest change will…
