Wanted: Gardeners to water the swale
Planning Meeting

Date: Saturday, 6th December, 2014

Time: 3pm at Bunya Park


Dear gardeners,
As our garden is now in its implementation phase, I would like to extend an invitation to attend our next planning meeting. 


As Project Manager, it is my job to coordinate all activities to ensure we build the garden as per the plan and in a timely fashion. I can only do this with the support of many people, so I am calling a meeting for Saturday December 6th at 3pm in Bunya Park so we can discuss the next steps and ensure we all understand what needs to happen, assign tasks, and get building!

I appreciate any assistance however limited, especially as Christmas is approaching.
Also, any ideas are gratefully accepted.
I look forward to seeing you all at the park.
Please bring your own chair, hat, water bottle and enthusiasm. (Water provided)

WBHS Greenhouse Working Bee


Warners Bay High School Students assisted members of Warners Bay Community Garden in constructing a pathway providing safer access to our greenhouse. Students also prepared and painted a patch on our tool handles ready for our group name to be shown.

We also enjoyed the sausage sizzle cooked by the students and the beautiful salads and snacks they supplied.

Thank you Warners Bay High School students. We hope you can participate in many more Warners Bay Community garden activities.


Edgeworth Neighborhood Centre
