We cancelled in early September and I'm sure we'll be luckier on September 30th when we meet at Goomalibee Rd - it was a day of bone-chilling wind and a popular decision.
,A sunny patch gave enough time for pruning and weeding in the front garden before a convivial and tasty afternoon tea at Frank & Val's.
Having gathered on the 5th, we've held off until September and our first session will be at 476 Goomalibee Rd on the 9th. As it's a new venture and a rather blank canvas there'll be room for planning and perhaps planting (if you have cuttings of geranium, salvia or suchlike hardy critters) and if you can stand the racket we have leaves to shred - even a few river gums to plant .
Then there's a fifth September Monday to consider so perhaps we can settle the rest of the year's venues (four if we continue into December).
About the Garden Team
A band of enthusiastic gardeners gathers once a
month for an afternoon at each member’s garden in rotation. The working bee uses each members skills and abilities to achieve about six
hours effect in an hour and a half. Then
we rest on our laurels with tea provided by the host and a home-baked and/or healthy
plate from the visitors. We head home a
little fitter and inspired, often with a new cutting or garden tip.
2nd and 5th Mondays
2 to 4 pm
Meet at members' gardens by turn.
(If the 2nd Monday is a public holiday, the garden team often meets on the 4th Monday.)
