Tree removal contractors

Shame that the lovely gates Andrew made were so damaged by moron tree removal contractors. If a gate is locked, most people would knock or call the owners, if they have a delivery. These cowboys just wrench the gates off their hinges and break the latch, dump their load (saves them $500) blocking the entry. Who does that? Is it illegal dumping? Certainly vandalism.

Spring Soup

My family had the leftovers (not that there was much!) of the delicious spring soup cooked at the garden yesterday,  as part of Fair Food Week. Vegetables were picked washed and cooked on our second rocket stove. So many vegetables…. leek, spring garlic, potato, asparagus, broad beans, cauliflower, snow and snap peas, carrots, fennel bulb, celery, parsley.  Quite a tonic!


Thanks to Thomas for organising, and welcome to a few new members.


Thirroul P.O Outreach

If anyone is free this afternoon, Matt and I are going to start creating a garden bed to grow food on the little strip next to the Post Office. Starting with cardboard and mulch, compost.

Thirroul Community Garden – Celebrating Fair Food

Come along to Thirroul Community Garden to celebrate this year’s Fair Food Week!

Thirroul community garden is a open community space where people can learn to grow their own food. We’ll be making a spring soup from vegetables harvested from the garden.

Date: 16/10/2018


Time: 4:30- 6:30


Cost: Free


All Welcome! 😊



AGM set for the 7th of October, 12 noon at the garden (after streamwatch). We will cook up a soup . All welcome.


We had a largseaweede seaweed dump this week, on a few of our local beaches (little Austi was one). Seaweed is the perfect material for compost. Exact mix of carbon/nitrogen in one, as well as providing sea minerals. Its free, and its local. We are allowed to take 20kg each per day.

If you pick any up, leave at the front gate, by the buckets.

We can make our own seasol, too…..

Seaweed can also be harvested for consumption. All our seaweeds are edible. See the links below.
