It wasn’t a promising start to the November working bee, as a rainy and grey morning greeted us. However the showers cleared and the rain seemed to give our gardeners a burst of energy. Our small group was very productive, achieving lots of tasks and working together as a dynamic team.
Four hazelnut trees were successfully transplanted, finding a new home along the north fence. The recent rain and warm weather had meant that some areas of the garden were rather overgrown, so lots of good weeding and whipper-snippering helped. We planted out the new communal vegie bed, and even found some space behind the hot house that was perfect for planting pumpkins.
Kay and Peter gave us an excellent walk around the garden, pointing out some of the changes that have taken place across the site. This includes a number of impressive new garden beds, which gardeners will make excellent use of.
We hope to see everyone for our twilight working bee and Christmas party, 6pm on Sunday 17 December.
