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
On 7th January 2019 – 9 members turned out at our first working hours for some time, group was shocked to see how easy the weeds had over run the garden, but proudly they bent their backs, roughened up their hand and removed a full trail load of weeds. The garden looked much better by the time we left for coffee and a chat. But we still have a big job ahead to recover the items we have lost.
