Community Garden ~ Can you volunteer an hour to two for a Newsagency Raffle Stall on Friday 2 September?
Raffle Stall Volunteers - Friday 2 September
We are hoping to run a fundraising raffle at the Manjimup Newsagency to raise funds for a NEW STORAGE SHED. If you can spare an hour or two, please register your willingness to help by replying to this email, along with your phone number and preferred time of day to lend a hand. All offers of assistance are appreciated.
Need volunteer to collect 4 wood pallets from Mitre 10 Manjimup
Mitre 10 Manjimup have donated 4 wooden pallets to the Garden so we can increase the number of compost bays. We need a ute or trailer to collect them and deliver them to the Garden. Please contact me if you think you can help and I'll give you more details. (BTW, we are still chasing 8 star pickets. Even if you have just one to donate, please let me know)
The pallets to be collected are square and double sided, like the one that Deb is leaning on in this photo.
Thank You, Stellar Violets, for our new quince trees
A quick shout-out to Lucinda Giblett of the Stellar Violets Life Library, Living Museum and Gallery for recently donating four quince trees to the garden. They were planted last Saturday and are expected to spring to life with new growth soon. We should have enough quince to make quince paste by next Autumn. Mmmmmm, yummy.
Welcome to the garden, Manjimup Education Support Centre (MESC)
We are thrilled to have had some seed packets adopted by the students at MESC. They have a hot-house at the school and will be raising seedlings for us, to be planted in the Garden later in Spring. Thank you for your support kids, we look forward to growing good food together.
Weekly Garden Gathering - This Saturday 1pm - 3pm
Just a reminder about our weekly gatherings. Yes, we have been gathering every week even when it's been wet and truly horrible outside. Believe it or not, it's still lots of fun regardless the conditions. Check out our Facebook page for some of the things we've been up to.
We still have seed packets for adoption. There is parking on Giblett Street and an entrance gate right near the Garden. If you're attending this week, we could use a shovel and wheelbarrow or two to help finish off mulching our pathways.
Happy gardening everyone!
