Pruning maintenance plan for Rea Lands park

Local pruning maestro, Gael Shannon, has been working on an orchard maintenance plan for Rea Lands Park over the past few years and today Patrick met Gael to go over the plan and ask her questions about how best to look after the many various fruiting trees including peaches, quince, almonds, figs, cherries, apricots, feijoa, plums, hazelnuts, citrus, berries and nectarines. Stay tuned for the maintenance plan drawing, which we'll publish here shortly.

Gael Shannon and Patrick Jones discuss fruit tree maintenance at Rea Lands Park today.

It is because of the generous contributions of local folk like Gael that our community food network can grow and prosper. We have much local knowledge in our area and many generous folk to pass this knowledge on. Tap into this knowledge, learn, give and get involved with one of the community gardens. If you want to be kept up to date with our regular working bees, workshops and other food related business, email us and ask to go on the mail out list, otherwise check in with our facebook page or keep an eye out for the chalk board at the Albert St garden (beside the library).
