Annabelle and friend at the Composting workshop - helping to disperse the Post Office Cafe coffee grinds being used as a mulch on a raised bed :)
For those not on Facebook I have listed an event for our little community garden group.
SEED SWAP MEET :
As the weather warms us gardeners starting thinking and dreaming about what to plant in the spring; lets get together and share seeds and tips for the coming months. For those wanting to start gardening this coming spring it would be a good chance to met fellow gardeners, and maybe learn some tips. It is still to chilly to met at the garden so I have suggest a pub, but that can be change that if someone has a better idea.
WHEN: Thursday 30th August 6pm
WHERE: Pub on Wharf

Hope to see lots of you there. Megan myself and one other did this in autumn, this time it would be great to have more than three.
I have set up a Facebook page for the group as we discussed in the AGM, the snow may have made me late to the meeting but let me do this today thanks to a closed day at Remarks. I decided to create a page rather than a group as a group would always be linked to my page. A page also has some other features that a group does not.
So if you are on Facebook simply type in to the search bar "Queenstown Harvest Community Garden" and than like the page. Once you have liked it, you can load pictures, leave posts or add links to other websites. Or follow this link:
Just as a heads up my ability to proof read is horrible unless it is on actual paper so I am sorry for any and all mistakes.
I have also sent out an invite email but often these things end up in junk mail.
Our very tidy garden shed at Gorge Road, thanks to Jim.
Neville has turned off the water and drained the lines, we don't want to risk the pipes freezing up.
I have a bucket of bokashi compost that is ready to go into the ground but do not have anywhere productive to put it where I live. Is anyone interested in using it at the community garden?
I found that site recently too, they have a Gardenate app for the iPhone which works really nicely too!
Visited the Community Garden yesterday with Meagan, was so excited to see all the energy put in and the potential that exists...Thanks Meagan for the tour and excitement you share for such work in the community....and your wonderful homemade Jam!
Recently mown areas around the communal fruit trees at Gorge Road.
Neville has connected a hose to the orchard area so if you're at the garden for any duration, can you please connect up the hose and turn on the water while you're on site.
The gate has been left open and a baby rabbit has been spotted in the garden.
Please remember to close the inner gate every time that you come into the garden and if your vehicle is the last to leave, also close the gate to the road.
The last time we had a problem with a possum, someone brought in a Timms trap. Would that kind soul please bring it back again? :)
