Collective effort (November working bee)

Our November working bee at Albert Street garden began with a look at what the free food stand had on offer. Emily introduces a visitor to the concept.

There were purple Congo spuds, last season Harcourt apples and broadbeans for starters.

Jono and Liv got into the veg-digging spirit of the day.

Nikki and Kai's grandma pulled weeds together.

Alison signed an Australian Food Sovereignty petition.

Ash (from above), Kai and Tom (below) set a compost,

and later Dora joined Alison in one of the central beds.

Meg explained a thing or two to Kai,

while Woody cut back the fever few.

Tom watered the garden, and over the next couple of hot weeks watered in the new seedlings each day.

Meg pondered between jobs.

and Ash took a break with a book.

Kirsten stopped just long enough to snap this,

and we all said farewell for another month. Bye Zero!

Next working bee is on again this Saturday, Dec 9. It runs from 9am - 12 noon at the Albert St garden (beside the library). All are welcome for as little or as much time as you can spare. It would be great to see you, and please bring spare seedlings of all kinds. We especially need to get some tomatoes and basil in the ground.
