November Working Bee

The garden was buzzing with activity on this gorgeous, sunny Saturday. The combination of rain and warmer weather has done wonders for our spring crops.

In addition to general gardening activities, members prepared more sections of the fallow area with newspaper and manure. A few brave volunteers attacked the compost bins by giving the material a good turn and re-mix.

A couple of new members have joined bed teams. Mish joins Melissa on the "Concrete Pipes" while Stephen joins the "North Bed", which will now be led by Robyn.

Congratulations to Leesa for becoming our new Education Co-ordinator.

Kati and Leesa harvested a bumper crop of pontiac potatoes and Hugo and Jess (a couple of our youngest members) harvested a bucket load of broad beans.

Thanks to Richard for sharing the shed design concept with everyone. Once members have had the opportunity to provide feedback, we look forward to setting up a pre-DA meeting with the City of Sydney to discuss our design.

Thanks to Jon, Kati & Leesa for answering some of our gardening questions and enlightening us about the art of tomato growing.

As always, everyone enjoyed the delicious brunch provided by Twig Cafe.

See you in December!
