What's on this month (West Brunswick)

Here are the times in the coming month when you're likely to bump into other gardeners down at the garden and garden organisers will be there to help show your around and answer questions:

Sat 15th June 10am - 1pm Food Forest Working Bee (Permablitz)
Sun 23th June 11am - 3pm Garden n Gather**
Sun 7th July 10am - 12noon Seed Savers and Propagation
Sun 14th July 10am - 1pm Communal Gardening**

Every Friday there's a casual meet up from from 10am**

  • Members can obviously visit the garden when they want to including any of these sessions
  • If you're interested just come along
  • Friday meetups attract a regular crowd and are a good opportunity to garden in company and learn a few things
  • Sessions marked with ** will have someone who can provide advice and direction on what's to be done in communal growing spaces
  • Members who have not yet visited should come down on one of these days to meet the garden (and a few gardeners) and get shown around
  • If there's a time you're available to spend time at the garden and you want company, let us know and we'll add it to the list
