Hello Community Gardeners,

This weekend there will be no working bee as it is the monthly produce markets in Kiama. We have been aware of the clash of loyalties this 4th Saturday of the month has presented for regular gardeners and have decided that one Saturday a month is not too much to give up as a regular working bee. Of course, active members of the garden are still welcome to spend time in the garden on these Saturday, but there will be no formal working bees on the 4th Saturday of the month for a while.
I bet the market will have trouble beating this harvest from a couple of weeks ago!

 Our next meeting will be at 4:30 on Wednesday 1st August at the garden. Come along, get involved and have some input into the nurturing and planning of our wonderful garden.

Saturday 4th August will be out next working bee, check this blog for more information next week.
Life is tough at the garden!

Maintenance in the garden

This Saturday, July 21 we're planning to neaten up the garden by continuing simple maintenance tasks. We'll be weeding and mulching and constructing some support for the broad beans. It should be a fairly relaxed morning from about 9.30am with morning tea to follow.  Bring some food to share, or a gold coin donation. The pictures here illustrate some of the weed varieties that are edible!

Parking is in the Kiama Leisure Centre car park or in Thompson St near the end of Bong Bong St. Please wear sturdy shoes and gardening clothes.
