May the Garden Grow

The arrival of May means the community garden is another year older – six years old – and it’s also time for membership renewals.

We are looking for new enthusiastic and active gardeners to join us. Enjoy the special space, good soil and water on tap!

May 29th is Membership Day. Come along and renew your membership, become a new member, meet other gardeners, find out how the garden works and what’s there to be done, enjoyed, shared, and just get inspired about gardening. From 9.30am am till 3pm; cuppas and cake provided, the pizza oven will be fired up for lunch (BYO toppings).

We have 15 individual plots (at least two are currently available) and also welcome keen gardeners who would like to join as ‘digger’ members (garden in the communal plots and general garden area, and share the harvests, stay in touch with happenings). You can also become a less active – but no less important – member by joining as a supporter or benefactor. See the details here.

If individual plots are all allocated we can put you on a waiting list till one becomes available and join us as a ‘digger’ in the meantime. We have several raised beds specifically designed for gardeners who aren’t able to bend or kneel.

The May Gardening Notes are also planted, posted – whether you are a member or not.

We had a very productive and congenial day in the garden at our last working bee on Saturday. Thanks to Dawn, Carmen and Angus, Lyn, Sally, Gen, Megan, Mary and Geoff, Louise, Saide, and all the offspring associated.

Don’t forget the Produce Exchange on the 7th, and for other events see the sidebar, or subscribe to the calendar. Or contact us at newsteadgarden@gmail.com.
