September working bee

Our first Spring working bee dawned cold and very wet especially as some of our gardeners decided to make a very early start, then again it’s never too early to go to a working bee. However,  the rain abated and the cold was tempered by our trusty fire masters – Pete, Malachy and Murphy.

The jobs completed included:

  • emptying of one of the compost bays and rescuing the beautiful compost that the rats must have hauled out and munched through on the outside perimeter (they did a great job of it!!)
  • weeding and composting of the raspberries on the south side of the gardens (behind the Tree Project potting shed)
  • clearing of a plot on the north side ready for planting
  • a sortin’ and a  sweepin’ and a tidyin’ of the ‘tool shed’
  • weeding and clearing of the outside south perimeter
  • weeding of the north perimeter to halt the creep of the weeds
  • bracing of the wicking bed that seems to have split its sides
  • planting of peas and lettuce into the communal wicking beds

Whew, we did all this in about 2 hours, it was a fantastic effort.  Then it was time for the AGM and … morning tea. It was great to see so many people at the working bee, talking, working, playing, laughing, having fun and eating  a delicious morning tea – some of  the reasons why we community garden!
