Thanks to so many garden members and their families who came out in the beautiful sunshine to work in the garden for a spring clean up day. There were 20 of us altogether!
Many chores got tackled, and an enormous pile of blackberry vines were cut out and chopped. The sheds are tidied and decluttered, the chairs are scrubbed, the cold frame is fixed and cleared out, the tarps and tent dried out, the scrap wood moved, the unusable debris gathered, the portapotty is spotless, the compost piles are expanded, the herb garden is replanted, the fundraising garlic bed is clear and ready to go. Countless other jobs were done too, everyone pulled together and worked really hard.
The potluck meal was amazing! After working for a couple of hours, we were ready to stop and have a beautiful bowl of curried lentil soup and some homemade buns and biscuits, iced tea, fruit, apple crumble, salad, pate, and lots of other treats.
A brief meeting followed, sitting in the shade. All in all, a great day!
