This is an initial call out for water roster volunteers for the Albert Street garden, next to the library, for the coming hotter months. I'm planning to put together a roster for Dec + Jan over the next couple of weeks so could willing people please let me know their availability.
Each person, or family group, will be asked to take on a weekly slot. Each week the garden will need watering perhaps twice... maybe less if it rains... maybe 3 times if it's scorching! Each watering usually takes 20-30 minutes. Another person will be rostered on for the same week to make sure the garden is adequately looked after. All you need for watering is on-site.
Also, anyone is welcome to be a casual participant... if you drop by and it looks parched, feel free to sprinkle!
(nb: on hot days watering is best done early morning, or late afternoon/evening.)
All our recent plantings of tomatoes, coriander, basil and spinach, to name some, will be grateful for your involvement!
Can interested people please contact me
