Our blog and August working bee

Hello all and welcome to our new blog. Hopefully we will all be able to use it to share information and images, and strengthen our community of gardeners. Anyone can leave a comment on this blog by simply clicking on comment, and if you don't have a google account or blog you can easily leave an anonymous comment without any need to sign in.

Today was our August Working Bee, and Ros, Marijka, Chris, Rebecca and Kym (and Joshua) spent some time weeding out at the front of the Gardens and emptying out the sludge that used to be the water chestnut bath behind the shed. We also dismantled part of the berry enclosure behind the shed with hopeful expectations of needing that space for a water tank in the future.
Earlier in the week Malcolm had whipper-snipped around the area in front of the gardens which made it look a lot neater.
Over a cup of tea we discussed what indigenous plants we would like to buy with the grant Marijka managed to get for us, and tomorrow Ros, Marijka and Rebecca will try to order some of them from VINC.

Hey it looks great...
I have an idea for a fund raiser - if anyone is game I think we need a group of 4 at least to go on that show "money or the mob'. Is anyone up for it - yes I am serious. Maybe we will win some money for the plot or maybe we will jsut increase our profile. What do you think?

Rebecca you little wizard...As a confirmed technophobe I'm not quite sure what I'm doing but it's very exciting just the same..... And those photos - quality is magnificent, almost makes a bloke want to give up on exotics and travel over to the darkside.........

I agree with other bloggers, great photos Rebecca...It makes me feel like I'm in sunny ol' northcote -a home of mine a while back- as you well know. It looks so bright and tranquil

You are all obviously doing great things with your N community garden -or allotment, as they are known here in England...I have seen some good ones here -some complete with trampolines and swing sets for the kids as their homes (flats) have no outdoor space..

keep up the insiring gardening...
