Gardening Time - Wednesday
September to May - 7:00 - 9:30am
June to August - 8:00 - 10:00am
Gardening Time is when our volunteer members get together to communally plant and maintain our fabulous range of fruit, flowers, vegetables and herbs, followed by a cuppa. We have a "jobs list" each week with a variety of tasks that suit people with a range of gardening experience – even beginners. Our OH&S policy requires that all attending the garden be able to walk safely unaided and have good balance. No need to phone ahead, just come along. We are a very friendly bunch and will welcome you wholeheartedly. You can come along for a couple of weeks before joining. Members enjoy access to free organic herbs and leafy greens and we distribute the larger vegetables and fruit to our Gardening Time volunteers.
We have a roster of volunteers who keep the garden thriving by watering on a regular basis. This usually takes from 1.5 - 2 hours. Full instructions are given. Email us here if you are interested.
Mowing and Whipper Snippering
Have some time to spare on a less regular basis? We have a roster of volunteers who keep the garden grass neat and tidy. This usually takes 2 - 3 hours depending on the season. All equipment and fuel is provided. Our mowers generally mow 2 – 3 times per year, but any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated. Email us here if you are interested.
