from the Gardens
There was capacity attendance for John Draper's workshop "Attracting Beneficial Insects" held last Saturday on the 24th July. Volunteers were kept very busy catering for the visitors with a woodfired pizza & soup lunch.
Unfortunately, some people had left it a little too late to book and missed out on this great workshop. But not to worry, there will be another chance to attend workshops for those who missed out with more coming up.
Keep a lookout for event notices on our Facebook page and come back to our website to check what's happening next on our Events Calendar page.
Coming up in July...

A handout including a list of flowers to attract insects will be provided.
The workshop will be held at Mandurah Community Gardens, starting at 10am and going through to 12pm.
With John's workshops always being popular, places are sure to go quickly. Booking early is recommended.

You are invited to stay for a hot pumpkin soup and damper lunch followed by a community busy bee to plant veggie seeds and do mosaics for our pizza oven and more.

The garden is known to form a strong impression in our minds. That could be a good reason why gardens are considered so good for our mental health.
With this in mind, we thought we might share something with you that we hope you find enjoyable to look at. Google Arts and Culture in collaboration with cultural institutions in the UK have put together this amazing collection of digital stories about gardens as an online exhibit.
