On Sunday we celebrated four years of Newstead Community Gardening. Time flies when you are in the garden – and it did on Sunday with many spending just about the whole day digging, planting, composting, weeding, harvesting, chatting. We celebrated, with what else, but cake! An array, including our Commnity Garden Cake (thanks to Barwon Heads), Upsidedown Quince, Lemon & Coconut Semolina, Scones, Jam & Cream, Lemon Slice, and something savory (relief after the sweet things) in Spanikopita ala Saide. The garden cake recipe is on our website … hope the rest will be forthcoming, very soon. Hint.
Welcome to new members Carolyn and Marcus (and thanks to Marcus for providing musical accompaniment to our gardening, very lovely) and thanks to all who attended. The Church folk gave us a lovely birthday card; thanks to Rev Fiona and all the congregation for being such wonderful neighbours and landlords.
We look forward to the next year as one of growth, bounty, generosity and connection.
