Thank you to everyone who showed up at the gardens on Sunday 13th Feb to share our Permaculture knowledge with the community.
We tackled the jungle of grass and tidied the front gardens; we enriched the soil throughout the food forest, adding biomass from the chopped and dropped popcorn cassia, QLD arrowroot, galangal and tulsi basil; and finally, we started bed #1 of the Olympic gardens! A rainbow of layers – green (nitrogen), brown (carbon) and black (inoculated bio char). This is a long-term vision. In 10 years, when the Olympics is in town, this soil will be producing the best, most nutritious veggies in the world!
It was inspiring and heart-warming to meet new, enthusiastic, and friendly faces at the community gardens, leaving us all feeling more connected, with a great sense of community as we work for a shared vision for the planet.
Inspired to maintain the vibrant energy of the days working bee/workshop, we would like to call out to any keen members and volunteers who’d like to join us on Wednesday mornings starting February 23rd from 9am, along with our monthly workshop/working bee days on the 3rd Sunday of each month.
