Retaining Wall Finished





Thanks to everyone who participated in another big working bee last Saturday, the retaining wall is now complete. After shovelling another mountain of soil, members were able to enjoy some planting.

A variety of plants and trees were planted in our new terraced area, including coffee, tea, olives (donated by Sophie), blackberries, logan berries etc. Unfortunately, it looks like some of berries have already been taken!

Some trees, kindly donated by Alpine Trees, were also planted including a lemon, lime and a quince. These have joined our existing "orchard", including our almond tree that is starting to blossom and a recently planted blood orange (donated by Kati).

Whie enjoying a yummy brunch supplied by Twig Cafe, we discussed seed orders for Spring planting, a new opportunity for organic material to be delivered to our compost systems and an intern opportunity with Leesa.
