Visitors to the garden
1. A group of students and their teacher from Advanced Community College will visit the garden this month to support their current study of community programs. Apart from a tour of the garden we will explain our history and aims and then involve them in practical sessions of composting, worm farm management, wicking beds and plot management.The session will be held on Thursday 24th October from 11am.
Any members wishing to help out on the day should contact Tom Freeman (0417 042 554).
2. Susan Reynoldson, Community Development Officer, Shire of Mornington Peninsula and Jo Price visited the garden earlier this month as they are conducting a review of the community support program. They were keen to discuss our aims and progress in delivering the benefits of the community garden to the local community. Overall they were impressed with the presentation of the garden and have provided us with numerous avenues to strengthen our relationship with the council and the community.
Spring Planting Season
We are now well into the spring planting season when members will be bringing punnets of seedlings to plant. We have recently cleaned out an enormous supply of empty plastic pots and punnets and as a result are asking that you take all leftover containers home with you when your planting is complete.
Also, a reminder that you are responsible for the removal of any other items you bring to the garden when they are no longer needed. Eg: netting, stakes, frames, plant tags etc. Thank you for your support.
