We are looking forward to meeting members of Redfern/ Surry Hills Community and introducing them to our patch of green.

It runs between 10:00am - 1:00pm - here's some of the planned activities:

- Mini-gardening demonstrations
- Compost classes
- Chat with garden members
- Seedling giveaway
- World class violinist playing spring tunes
- Fantastic raffle, with great prizes donated from our friends at Burts Bees and Milkwood Permaculture
- Fresh baked biscuits (while they last)

We hope you can join us - and suggest you wear closed shoes, sunscreen, hats and bring along bottled water.

Happy Spring

Hi everyone - because our official September working bee was rained-out, we had a mini bee yesterday - big focus on getting things ready for very exciting October Open Day.

Jon brought along a bunch of florals and herbs that were leftover from the Australian Gardening Show (lovely to have a few pretties about), and our slightly abridged working group happily pottered about.

Unfortunately I didn't grab happy snaps of co-presidents doing the heavy graft on the compost bins!

 Eveline putting finishing touches to compost!

Nimita topping up the main bed!

A little lettuce planting in the Herb bed, and around the base of Root Bed!

Oooh, albino broccoli (I don't think so).


More pretty!

Have a great month and see you at our Open Day in October!
