Dear Community Gardeners,

It has been lovely to see our garden membership grow, and with spring not too far away we look forward to that membership growth blooming in the improved seasonal conditions. You will see below one of our new recruits sharing his knowledge by running a workshop on the correct way to transport some of the gardens produce. Thank you Santi (and Pia).

We have been having some cool, but comfortable gardening weather lately. This Saturday 4th August we will be:

  • Organising our new shelves
  • Turning the hot compost
  • Making decisions about what seeds to plant both directly in the beds and in trays for seedlings and then planting them out.
  • Planting out some of our existing seedlings
  • Feeding the hungry worms (please bring vegie scraps if you can spare them)

A part of the early seed and seedling planting we will be trialling the idea of reusing old plastic bottles as little hot houses for the seedlings. We will keep you posted on this experiment.

From 9am, please enter the garden from the Kiama Sports Fields. 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. Please bring a hat, gloves and a tasty treat to share for morning tea (a gold coin donation box available in lieu of bringing food). Hope to see you there.
