Mount Alexander Shire are developing their environmental strategy for the next few years. They’ve developed ‘a survey‘ to seek opinion on their five priorities. Most community gardeners in Newstead are also concerned with their surrounds, so please take the time to respond. Unfortunately there’s no room to add your own thoughts, or tick outside the box. However it is quick to complete.
Here’s the link: http://surveymonkey.com/s/fivepriorities.
Closer to home, we had a nice afternoon yesterday pruning the rest of the stonefruit, pear and apple trees (apart from the ones still bearing) and after discussions on Saturday have some plans for the year ahead, and some volunteers to act on them. We’ve all done well getting the garden through another long, hot and very dry summer.
