Aah... Spring is in the air

Churchill community garden news 

The gardeners are back at the community garden after a break for covid lockdown as there is plenty of open space for social distancing. With the change of season there is always plenty to do in the garden. We have harvested the lettuce, cabbage and brussel sprouts and are now preparing the garden for tomato and cucumber crops. Potato and pumpkin have already been planted. The preschool children and their teachers have been to visit the garden and have enjoyed seeing the plants grow. 

 We have recommenced the monthly food swaps on the first Sunday of the month from 10.30 am. This has been popular with excess fruit and veges being exchanged as well as jams, pickles, cakes, bread, flowers and crafts. We also collect food waste from local shops for our compost and worm farm.  The garden is in Phillip Parade behind the library. The gardeners work there Tuesdays from 10am, new members welcome to join us then. Look for us on Facebook for photos of the garden.
