What a difference the cooler weather makes! Over the last few weeks, we have been very busy planting vegetables for our spring harvest and with the cooler weather, our little seedlings are now starting to flourish.
We have Pak Choy, Shallots, Spinach, Beetroot, Lettuce, Silver beet, Tomatoes, Cauliflowers, Cabbages, Broccoli, Beans, Snow peas, Eggplant, Brussel Sprouts, Carrots and Potatoes all doing very well.
Our members are all enjoying their time at the garden as it is so pleasant to be out in the sunshine watering and weeding and maintaining our beautiful community garden. We have a wonderful bunch of keen gardeners who are all willing to lend a hand. Each Sunday afternoon, we gather at the garden to tend to the plants and keep the surrounds neat and tidy.
At the moment, our herb garden has flowering basil that is attracting the bees, society garlic (which has beautiful lavender flowers which are edible), thyme, tarragon, mother of herbs and garlic chives.
The HOG community is a friendly group who offer people in the Hills District the opportunity to grow vegetables using organic principles. Age is no barrier so feel free to come along one Sunday afternoon to have a chat and a look around our beautiful garden.
Our members meet on a Sunday afternoon from 3pm to 5pm. As well, they also attend the garden through the week to water and do general maintenance.
You will find us at 416 Bunya Road, Bunya next to the Off Leash Dog Park. Membership Fees per year are $15 for adults, $25 for family, and $5 for Juniors.
We look forward to meeting you!
