We recently installed some cypress mulch between some areas of our garden beds to reduce the area needing mowing and whippersnipping. The mulch and weedmat were purchased from a Brisbane City Council grant. This grant has also provided funding to cover much of our maintenance and consumable costs for the year. As always, we are very grateful for the ongoing support of Brisbane City Council.

Members of the Graceville Community Garden committee visited for a tour and to see how Harvest Share works. They were impressed with our garden.

The Gardening Bee workers focused on specific tasks in the garden, which the Wednesday gardeners decided they needed help with.  

These included pruning the pigeon peas that had grown to monster proportions.

 These pioneer plants. which also helped fix nitrogen into the soil, were great to start off our food forest, shading our young fruit trees, protecting them from the winds and sharing some n...
