from the Gardens
Cheryl recounts the day:
It was a great day with 26 other like-minded gardening enthusiasts from all over the metro area. We shared nasturtium pesto, a yummy pumpkin cake and some roasted pumpkin seeds for afternoon tea. A delightful way to spend the afternoon.
We heard all about the history of tomatoes and how soil can be improved to suit growing vegetables, etc. We planted a couple of different varieties of tomato seeds and will plant them in the communal beds at the garden.
We had a tour of the garden and loved all the clever ideas. There were 2 Hills Hoist clothes lines being used for a passionfruit trellis, which provided shade as well.
Re-use and repurpose was a common theme with 2 fridges used as worm farms as well. Lots of sheep manure was used as mulch and everything was looking green and lovely.
Thanks to all those who organised this event and hosted us.
