Garden turns over new leaf
Local gardeners of all ages took respite from the sun at the shady Karratha Community Garden on Saturday, February 6, at the first busy-bee event of the year.
Most of the group planted vegetable seedlings, including capsicum, eggplant and tomatoes for harvesting later in the year, while younger participants did plenty of decorating with coloured chalk.
There are several new features. The committee is building a selfcomposting hay bale garden, a tea garden is on the way, and there is a new chilli variety patch.
Mums and bubs gardening sessions have started on Mondays from 8am until 11am.
Garden secretary Amanda Ridout said the sessions were free and open to new members.
