April Working Bee

April 2nd 2016 Working bee 

The April working bee was a glorious sunny autumn morning. Attendance was great and much was achieved, including another clean out of the shed…




…thank you Lydia and Janet!!

After general revulsion at the sight of masses of crawly creatures in our compost bins, Jess educated us regarding the wonderful work that black soldier fly larvae (Hermetia illucens) do in breaking down waste…

Our enthusiastic larvae at work…






Thanks Jess!

Our new young and enthusastic member Michael did great work up the ladder pruning…





…with mum Cathy, Cassie (and Fish) supervising!



Chula hard at work in the Root Bed…


Whilst Wade had his hands full…



Kati and new “Seed King” Paul worked hard on the Twig Bed…




And “Worm Farm Queen” Vinita brought new pup Apple along….

By the end of the Bee the Garden (and Shed) looked spick and span – as well as verdant! Great work all.

See you at the May Bee on Saturday 7th!

February Working Bee!

Lots of action on an overcast, steamy but ultimately rewarding morning. With all the December/ January rain and happy holidays (and resting beds) - the garden was looking a bit ... tropical ... when we turned up for Feb working bee.

Two main jobs were clearing and composting! But there was also cuteness, reunions and fantastic eating and community!

The clearing ... 






The composting ... (3-days on, expect the good burghers of Redfern still smelling it's richness)





Some cuteness ... 



Happy reunion ... welcome back Janet, little Janet and (ooooh) the vampire!



FANTASTIC catering ... the Main Bed set a new standard. Thank you Main Bed!



And finally, our community:
