from Mandurah Community Gardens
West Australian waste educator Peg Davies is holding a workshop at Mandurah Community Gardens on Saturday 10th December 2022. Peg has been educating schools, organisations and local government for over 13 years, with her waste education programs winning many awards. To learn more about what Peg offers, go to her Lessen With Peg: Rethink Waste website www.lessenwithpeg.com
The workshop is in 2 parts, covering:
Composting Made Easy
Making compost can be a smelly or sometimes depressing experience - no more bad smells, rats or flies. You will never need to buy soil or conditioner again.
We were recently given the exciting news that our grant application with Lotterywest was successful!
After nearly two years in the planning, we are now able to move ahead with our planned upgrades. These include extending our under cover area by three metres and extension to the side of the roof so that our workshops can comfortably accommodate more people. We will also be adding clear café blinds to keep out the wind and rain during winter so that the area is more weatherproof.
Another project on the list - we will also be installing a new kitchen! This will give our members and visitors more working space, and a healthier environment for food preparation. The new cupboard space will also provide much needed extra storage in the shed.
We anticipate the work to commence in March 2023 and that it should not be too disruptive, but we will keep you informed along the way so you know what’s happening in our beautiful garden.
Early next year we hope to have a small gathering at the garden to celebrate this wonderful grant from Lotterywest - we will publish more details closer to the event.
Again, we deeply thank Lotterywest for this wonderful grant that will extend the value that Mandurah Community Gardens provides to our community.
Expect updates as work progresses - stay tuned!
Starting in November and continuing in December on successive Tuesdays, the air will be filled with beautiful sound as vocal coach Sarah Morrison from Musical Kite String holds singing workshops at Mandurah Community Gardens.

As Sarah says, "Singing is great for the soul, it boosts mental health and confidence". So why not get involved and share with others in the moment?
No experience is necessary to attend, and everyone is welcome to come down and learn how to express themselves. It's a joyful tonic for the soul.
If this is you, or you know someone that would love to come along and try, please pass this on.
