Hi everyone,
We are setting up a new community learning gardening space around Ellerslie-Remuera. Our focus at present is building up fertility as quickly as possible, with the establishment of hot compost piles on future growing areas. Come and join us and learn how to do this at your place. In return we will ask you to help us building up the piles, We are planning to have sessions on Thursday afternoon and evening. Diane 418 04 38
