Big Dig #2, Personal Plots and Pixies (yep!)

Yikes, flying carrots!
Hi everyone,
Hope you're all well and coping OK with these bursts of heat. A few things for you...

Garden & Gather (Sunday 23rd Dec, 10am-4pm) Yep it's ON!

We've got a fantastic alternative to slogging through the Christmas queues in the city or at your nearest shopping centre - come to our next Big Dig. Let's face it, if you need to shop and you haven't done it by then, well you've still got Monday! It's our last get together for the year and we'll be digging in celebratory mood after what's been a big year for the food forest and the garden. Come down and get stuck in!

We've got a heap of stuff to do so of course we'd love to see you for the whole session but even a couple of hours will make a difference. No doubt we'll finish up with a cool refreshing drink so come and say hello.

As usual bring a plate, a drink, gloves, a hat and suncream!

Personal Plot Allocation

Oh, one more thing for the 23rd those who are successful in their personal plot applications will find out which is theirs! Surely you want to be there for this history-making moment.

Yarn bombing

We've had a visit from the yarn bombing pixies of Brunswick and they've done their bit to help make our fence look a bit less institutional (see the picture). Go down and check it out for yourself. Apparently they might come back if we grow lots of food.


We all owe a big thanks to the watering crews who're keeping things alive and growing down in the food forest and the big communal bed we planted a few weeks back. We're aware it's taking a pretty long time to get the communal bed watered.

Of course it'd probably be more pleasant (and certainly quicker) to have a couple of extra people there helping so if you're not on a crew and can help, let us know.

Enough for now, see you on the 23rd!
