Community Builders and works in the garden.
Working Bees and becoming involved.
- Autumn has gradually descended into Winter in the gardens, trees along Exeter St have going through a bit of a change, the Eucalypts seemed to have recovered from what ever ailments they had. The gardens are green and veggie beds are producing. In summary April was pretty big in the end, with 4 workshops running that engaged over 60 school aged and preschoolers, not including the accompanying mums dads and grandparents, thanks to our volunteers engaged in running these. On the horizon the gardens will be running more of these and in partnership with Camden Council and through Reduce Landfill will deliver these to the community over the coming months.The Reduce Landfill site is a great opportunity for residents who cannot get to the gardens for a workshop to improve their own knowledge of things brown and green and beyond. The weather has made its mark with the sudden deluge of winter rains being of great benefit to the Community Garden, a newly reinstated water tank is now full and will supplement our current water supply and be used to water our natives and greenhouse herbs.
- July sees the Community Builders funding come to an end which the Community Gardens gained back
Raised garden beds. Camden Mens Shed helping out.
- A big thankyou has to go to all concerned with gardens, thus far we estimate in excess of 1500hrs of volunteer work has gone into the garden per year and without that help that early vision would not be realised today. Thanks to the local mens shed for their assistance in constructing a storage area for the shared zero turn.
- The Community Gardens next working bee is Sunday July 21st, everyone is welcome, any non members wishing to attend can get involved, take some fresh herbs home, meet some great people and enjoy a freindly BBQ, all for the pricely sum of $4 and that covers your membership for the next 12 months. The working bee kicks off at 9-9.30am.
