$2.7M building permits
It’s that time of the year when we have finished with the winter crops and we should be well into the planting of our summer ones.
Ready to pick in the Community Garden’s present patches are snow peas, celery, onions, lettuce, broccoli, spinach, rhubarb, sorrel, and various herbs.
New crops in are sweet corn, beetroot, tomatoes and others.
Any of the ready to pick crops can be selected for a gold coin donation, so why not visit the garden and get fresh veggie?
If you have not had a look at the community garden, come down and join members on Thursday mornings and you can get expert information on what to grow and when and how to get the best success from your plantings.
There is also a maintenance group who can suggest what type of garden fixtures might work in your garden; no garden is too big or small to produce something for the kitchen table.
Just come along and have a chat and have a cup of tea you might even decide to join us, there is no formality and we are a good mixture of ages.
