from Mandurah Community Gardens
A big thank you to our local Mandurah Rotary Club!
The Garden was fortunate to receive a Wishing Well Grant of $1550.06 from the Mandurah Rotary Club. This Grant was for Seed Raising, Seedling Shelter and Seed Drying.
How It Helps Continue The Garden Cycle
Using seed raising mix and seeds to start the process, garden members will plant the resulting seedlings into raised beds (which are accessible to volunteers of all abilities). These are then mulched with CCC, watered and fed.
With the shade cloth structures to provide relief from the hot and drying summer heat, the plants thrive, and when the time is right, the crops are harvested, which will then provide healthy, organic food for our members and the local community. Some crops will be dried and some will go to seed with the seeds being dried on the purpose-built drying frames - so nothing is wasted. Then the cycle starts over again...
Now we will be able to complete the full circle of growing vegetables, herbs and edible flowers at Mandurah Community Gardens.
We used the funds for:
Proposed improvements to be done: a BIG THANKS to Mandurah Rotary Districts with their donation of the Rotary Wishing Well Grant to Mandurah Community Gardens.
Thanks to our members and volunteers for their help and hard work, and thanks also to Ron and Terry for building and installing the frames.
Of course, our thanks to Mandurah Rotary Club was also shared on our Pinterest profile and our Facebook page.
