Upcoming Community Garden & Bushcare Events
Sunday October 7 Bushcare Working Bee + Rise and Shine Cleanup *2 9:30am – 12 pm
We have a great big load of mulch, and a whole lot of new plants from the council’s bushcare nursery for our bushcare zone alongside the creek. Come along and help bed them in. Also on open day, a generous donor brought the beautiful gift of an Illawarra Flame Tree, which we’ll plant in the native zone.
Also this coming Sunday, we’re participating TWICE in the Rise and Shine Cleanup program run by Wollongong Council. Our Bushcare group will clean up the creek and the Bushcare Zone beside it and to the east. Our Garden group will clean up High Street Reserve. And for each of these efforts, we’ll earn $100 from Council as a thankyou, to spend on our gardens and the license fee. Please come along. Bring an ingredient or 2 for a sandwich (pot luck), and we’ll break and have a little picnic to keep the energy up during the working bees.
