Working Bee with guest speaker Doug from Urban Bee Hive

With soil delivered and lots of seedlings thanks to John there was a bit to be done on this lovely Spring day  for a working bee. But many hands make light work and it was quickly underway. Doug from theurbanbeehive.com.au arrived and was well impressed by the garden itself and all the happy working bees for the community. Next, the morning tea cart just after 10:30am curtesy of Twig so a good time to hear from our guest speaker.


Doug mentioned he could talk until the bees got home but the brief summary of some of the issues surrounding problems and benefits of bee around the world and answering all of our questions was fantastic for us who all listened closely. The end result being that it is possible for us to have a bee hive as part of our community garden, so with a few plans to make hopefully we will have some bees of our own one day! We'll keep you updated...


  • Lots of composting
  • Harvesting of parsnips, kale, mixed lettuce and herbs
  • Installing new signs
  • I planted a mini pumpkin variety
  • Lots of other things panted in all beds
