The garden was lucky enough to receive a large amount of compost, courtesy of Darebin City Council (and their new initiative to collect food scraps in green bins).
With so much compost to distribute, a great majority of the working bee was spent filling wheelbarrows and bags full of compost to put on individual plots and communal garden beds. This was definitely a job to get the heart rate up!
All hands on deck with compost distribution
Of course, there was also weeding to be done, with a few committed gardeners even scaling fences to get those weeds growing in the hardest places to reach.
With so many gardeners present for such a beautiful Spring morning working bee, the jobs were ticked off in no time and gardeners could fill their bellies with the delicious baked goods that were shared at morning tea!
