May Garden and Gather

Our wonderful worms in our black-gold
 In glorious sunny weather, a group got together to sort through a small list of to-do's.

On the list was regular compost turning, weeding (this is a perennial task!), finding and shaping the paths around the communal beds and mulching around personal plots.We also got to oiling our beautiful benches that have become a feature of our gorgeous communal working-bee lunches.
Pepino fruit
We factored in a new feature - a final 'ooh-aah' walk at the end of the day, which entails walking around, taking in the sights of all that has been accomplished throughout the day.
Great weather and great benches!
Lunch was a feast of home cooked and carefully transported delights. We also shared some pepino fruit from plot holders Eli and Enda.
Everyone took home newly harvested lettuce, tomatillos, pumpkins, left overs from lunch and chillies and lemons from Richard. The next G&G is June 28th, 11-3pm.

We're working together for a vibrant, sustainable network of community gardening locations in Moreland.

Our a 100% volunteer-based non-profit community group currently manages two community gardens in West Brunswick and Pentridge a food forest (also in West Brunswick).

Stop and think for 1 minute and you'll come up with at least one good reason for having community gardens all over the place. In case you don't have a minute or need some help, here are our top five!
  1. To bring people together.
  2. To hold on to Moreland's character and gardening knowledge.
  3. To provide somewhere where people can do some physical activity, relax and enjoy themselves
  4. To encourage sustainable gardening
  5. To make it easy for people to get hold of healthy locally grown food
