Plots available ...
We have several plots available. If you are a current member interested in hiring a plot for the season, email or call Jenny or Katherine.
Thanks to those who attended our AGM.
Three members stepped down from the committee (a big thank you for contributions through the year!) and all other members from the previous year were re-elected unopposed with the executive remaining the same.
We would love to see some new members join the committee for the upcoming year. It is not a huge commitment and we appreciate the input and ideas new members bring to the committee. If you are interested, please contact Jenny or Katherine or send an email to us at the garden.
Several of our members are in the process of revamping their plots to make them into wicking beds. For more info in what is involved check out the article in the Resources page, or come along and lend a hand on a Wednesday afternoon about 6 pm for and hour or so (until daylight saving starts when we will make another time)
New citrus gall wasps have been found on lemon trees in Lochiel Park. Please check your citrus for swellings in the soft tissue of new growth. It is recommended to cut off the swellings and cook in the microwave before disposing to kill the grubs. Community garden and the orchard will be checked and sprayed ASAP. Eco-oil can be sprayed on your trees as a preventative measure.
Thanks to Alice and others at UniSA for their hard work getting ours and many other community websites up and running again after a severe hacking episode in late 2017. We’ll now be able to continue the editing of the site, so if you see something not quite ‘there’ yet, rest assured we’ll get to it as soon as we can
