Join us Sunday April 26 for the compost turn!

Hello Gardeners

This Sunday, we’ll be turning the compost from around 9 am down at the garden. Then on to check on our recent plantings and make a plan for the next plantings. If you joined us at our open day, or are planning to join, come along! We’ll take you on a tour and induct you into our mysterious ways!

Bring a plate to share for morning tea. Kazie’s bringing coffee, Jenny’s bringing cake. Julie’s bringing cheese and crackers. So there’s some inspiration!


And here’s a little more inspiration – this photo shows Les and Dani helping Kazie move the giant mulch mountain in preparation for open day. What a great job they did, but there’s lots more mulching to be done folks! Come and join the fun.

Upcoming Events
