October Bee

Over thirty participants attended this month's working bee, which we held at Daylesford Neighbourhood Centre (DNC).

All around the DNC buildings are garden beds which are slowly filling up with food plants and herbs.

Paul had organised a delivery of lucerne rounds which we spread along the back garden.

Jasmine, Jill, Adrian, Jeremy and others attacked the west bank.

Dora, Tim, Chris and Luke worked on the front beds.

Eric taught in spontaneous waves contiguous with his beard.

We emptied the straw truck and got farmer Ian Miller's number for more affordable local farm materials (0438 944 422).

We spread the straw and stacked the excess under cover for another day.

Sarah and Ivan manned the Daylesford Food Co-op while they gardened with us.

Lindy (in green below) set up the first Harvest Swapmeet for the season including many seed swaps.

Jo, Tony, Ian and Lena weeded out the strawberry patch and the footpaths.

Danger Maz took to the bent grass with an iron tool.

And we piled up all the weeds, layered by soaked straw, underneath the oak.
