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.
