$2.7M build­ing per­mits

The Free Press (Corowa) - - FRONT PAGE -

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.
