Community Garden Design Workshop - Sunday 30th September

Designing our community garden - Sunday 30th September 1.30 - 4.30pm

Update: the location for this workshop will be the Richard Lynch Senior Citizens Centre, 27 Peacock Street, West Brunswick

You've probably seen the picture above before, it's the draft garden plan we've been talking about for a while now. We know it's not there yet, there are things we still need to work out like how big the raised and in-ground beds should be, where they should go, how many personal plots and how big they should be, there's far too much green "grass", we've got compost bays to fit in, we need room for propagating plants etc.

So, a few weeks back, we had a tour of 4 other Moreland community gardens and got lots of ideas. Our next step is a design workshop (which sounds like hard work but we'll make sure it's great fun) where all our members can contribute ideas and help make decisions.

We're still organising a venue but please mark Sunday 30th September 1.30 - 4.30pm into your calendar now and let us know ASAP that you'll be coming along (this helps with refreshments and planning and reducing the worry that nobody will turn up!).

This is going to be a great afternoon with lots of great ideas to draw out and pin down. Come and have your say, get involved!
