Working Bee This Sunday 8th of July

What’s in the newsletter?

– We’ve received piles of materials to get our composting systems going

– Jobs that we’ll be focusing on this Sunday

It’s been quiet around the garden lately but now it’s all happening.

During the week we took delivery of more mulch to top up the activity space and start some new paths and we were also lucky to receive almost a cubic meter of worm castings with worms still in residence! This will be the start of one of the range of composting systems that we will run in the garden. We’ve also accumulated piles of cardboard (thanks Mark) and bags of coffee husks thanks to which will contribute a heap of carbon for soil building.

During the coming week we will take delivery of used coffee grounds from and four hand-me-down worm farms organised by the awesome people in the Moreland City Council Waste department (thanks Tammy!).

We’ll get the systems set up and let you know how to sort your kitchen scraps so that we can keep them in Fawkner and turn them into something not just useful, but needed in the garden.

This Sunday, we’ll be setting up compost bays, spreading mulch and constructing another vegetable row.

If you’d like to help or just have a look at what’s going on, come and see us from 10am. Feel free to bring a shovel and a wheel barrow!
