Time to pick kale, lettuce and spinach

SUNDAY 5 AUGUST – GARDEN IS OPEN 10AM TO 1PM

The winter sun was out and it was all hands on deck last Sunday. Some new faces around the place as people stopped at the gate to say gday.

And so we celebrated National Tree Day by adding another row to the garden –  and filled it with tasty leafy greens. Thanks to everyone for your hard work weeding, shifting compost, planting and behind the scenes too.

kale

We’ll be back this weekend and will build another row to plant radish, carrots and beetroot from seeds.

Join us any time on Sunday morning for a bit of gardening and to pick up some fresh locally grown winter veggies.

We now have beautiful kale, lettuce, spinach and nasturtium ready to pick in the garden. Bring your containers to take some home.

STILL HUNGRY

We also still need your kitchen scraps to help feed our worm farms (yep they’re hungry every week!) and they like to eat:

– Fruit and vegetable scraps (not too many garlic, onion, or citrus)
– Paper and cardboard
– Coffee grounds and tea bags
– No meat, dairy, pastry, bread or past

We’ll also take onion, garlic or citrus; pasta, bread and pastry (shredded), grass clippings and dried leaves for our other compost systems.

See you in the garden – 2 Creedon Street, Fawkner, on Sundays from 10am to 1pm.
