We’re sowing and seeding in all sorts of ways. Come along to gardening this Thursday 11th (see upcoming events – on the sidebar – for times) and on Sunday from 2pm as we sow seeds for Summer and also the Festival of Gardens fundraising. We have seeds, but bring any you have to contribute. Grow for your own plot or for all of us. The Newstead preschool will be starting some as well on Thursday from 11.30am and would welcome guidance from gardeners.
Meanwhile we’ve been busy post Jinette’s session developing thoughts and ideas and readying for the fundraising dinner – keep October 25th free – and the Festival of Gardens starting Melbourne Cup weekend, as well as the Childrens Literature Festival, soonest, on September 30th. Megan, Mary, Sarah, Gen, Julie and others are leading the way with these events, all important for our coffers, as well as fun things to be involved in.
Today the Newstead CWA held their Spring Fling at the garden with members from surrounding groups. Gayle,Carolyn and I gave them a bit of a tour and talk about the history of the garden, compared pesky critter control and enjoyed the sunshine and stonefruit blossoms. It’s wonderful having others visit the garden and share this special space. Thanks Janet and Daryl for all the organising.
