Gardening in July

We hope you’re making the most of these sunny days in Winter – glorious!

Members
A warm welcome to our newest member Joanne.  Thank you Joanne for already attending a working bee – great to have you join us! Also, Lee with another representative of Community Connections (Karingal) is in the process of finalising their membership so that their group can start work on plot 29.

A shout of thanks to Ryan too, not a member – yet , but helped install all the raised beds. And welcome home Judy and Steve, and others who’ve had a break.

AGM and more
The Committee is currently finalising the business to be covered at our AGM, so a notice will go out to you next week with the date, agenda and attaching nomination forms.

We are inviting all members to get involved in a way that suits their talents/interests. There are many things that help keep a happy, flourishing gardening community going.  We will put out a preliminary list which you can add to either before or at the AGM. For example, it would be great if a member could put together a decent newsletter and someone else can modernize our website. I’ve just been skimming the surface! Other skills are organising morning teas, social and community events, mowing, fundraising, etc.

Working Bee
Our next working bee is Saturday 14 July.  We are making the time from 10am through to 1pm for winter.  Drop in when you can to help and bring your ideas of what you would like included or changed at the Garden. If you can only get there after 1pm, give us an email and someone will be there to meet with you.

Raised beds
You’ll see on Facebook that Lynda has acquired a load of manure from another horse (or two). Composted manure will be used in layers with soil and newspaper/grassclippings/straw-hay/leafy plants/old veg, etc. to finishing filling the raised beds. We will make a start on this and put up a note on the whiteboard at the Garden so that you can add whatever when you visit.

Do you have a trailer?
The manure needs to be collected and offloaded at the Garden. Let us know if you have a trailer and car to tow it! 

Happy gardening everyone J
