Gardening

 

 

Our Gardening Club.

We are now entering our tenth year of gardening activities with 15 members and 80 square metres of fertile soil ready to produce wonderful vegetables for the group.

We have two plots at The Ringwood Community Garden in Selkirk Avenue in Wantirna.  Our plots are surrounded by treated hardwood sleepers.  The raised beds are aesthetically pleasing to look at, and aid good drainage and management.

Our group meets monthly to work on the plots and then have morning tea together.

Members also visit the garden at other times to assist with watering, weeding and other chores. We can grow almost any vegetable we fancy, with corn, tomatoes, various types of beans, potatoes and strawberries being favourites.

Our members join in with Community Garden rosters for mowing and general working bees.

The garden is a very relaxing place to visit, wander around and talk to the vast variety of people who work their plots.

GARDENING CLUB REPORT 

September working day was interesting watching the mother ducks and their duckling’s enjoying the ponds that had developed during the heavy rains we received on the first week of Spring. Not much work could be done, smart gardeners had gumboots to wear, others decided garden runners where more comfortable in the muddy water around our garden plots. By the end of work a reasonable amount of fresh produce had been picked and shared by those attending.

We welcomed back our holiday members who where wise enough to head north for the Victorian winter.

The garden will be in good shape once it dries out, thanks to Don Bignell, Graeme Roy, Ron Ireland, Viv Keys, Heather Glover, David Cooper and John Wicks who all turned up when needed, in all types of weather conditions and maintained the garden.

Invitation to all Ringwood Clock Tower Members, you are invited to join the garden club members for morning tea under our great oak tree on the 10.30 AM on 12th November 2019. Come early and inspect the Community Garden and if available sample some of our produce.
