Varsity Vegies Community Garden Year Off To A Swimming Start
Showers interspersed with sunshine give a silvery glow to the mandala entrance where new plantings amidst the perennials are underway for the cooler autumn months.
Tree cutting in the local park provides great mulch for recycling on the shared garden area where Taro, lemon grass and citrus trees are some of the plantings.
Last seasons crops into the wheelbarrow and off to the compost.
Lots of work to be undertaken to get the soil ready for the coming growing year.
As global warming increases our planet becomes more vulnerable and security food gardens are becoming more important.
