Warners Bay Community Garden

Welcome to 2013 gardeners! We have high hopes for this year and we will endeavor to keep you up to date with the latest news on the progress of the garden. Council will be conducting their own meetings early February to work out their various logistical actions prior to us turning soil in Bunya Park. We expect to be meeting with council, local residents and Landcare representatives shortly after that to discuss moving forward.
February Seedling Workshops
We are running a seedling growing workshop at our green house in February - Wednesday 6th February, 8.00am; Thursday 7th February, 8.00am or 6.00pm.

All welcome. Bring a fold up chair and water to drink.

Seeds Wanted 
To help keep seedling production costs down we are inviting members to donate surplus vegetable and herb seeds they might have saved from their own garden. Seeds can be donated at our stall on 23rd February. Further details please contact Trish 49471821.
Cement Mixer Needed 
A big thank you to Fred Gorring for donating a large amount of compost to the group. The compost is broken down but still a bit too lumpy to use as seed raising mix. By adding sand and then tumbling it in a cement mixer we will be able to make beautiful seed raising mix. If anyone has a cement mixer they would like to donate or loan to the group, we would very grateful.

The Farmers Markets at Speers Point are held on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of each month from 8am to 1pm. The next stall we will be attending is Saturday 23rd February. Keep an eye on our Facebook page for up to date information about future stalls.
