August Working Bee

We had a beautiful crisp winter's morning for our August working bee.
The big bed team were all out in force, Richard helped to weed and new members helped to start a new potato bed
Nicola asked Jon to explain crop rotation.
The Big Bed Organised this working bee and a big lot of work was achieved, including a new path in the north of the garden.
and a new drain for the tap that will allow more planting and eliminate muddy shoes.

Most of the beds were working out what to plant for the forthcoming Spring
and everyone took the chance to catch up on the last month
Veronica got handy with the clippers and Ren helped his mum.

Jon showed his expert digging technique



Mel explained the benefits of the gardening belt


and Amanda and Chris pitched in despite injuries.
Thanks Yvonne for organising the bee and making sure everything was tidy at the end!
