We may not have had too much rain in the last few days, but we’re still focused on water. Class 2/3 from North Katoomba Primary School learn all about our Water Catchment Area with Jasmine Paget from BMCC. We begin with close scrutiny of the water catchment model, a dozen pairs of eyes soaking in the model version of this house on the hill. 60 seconds to take in all the details, then “eyes closed! what do you remember seeing?”
What would I have remembered at that age I wonder?
Work continues this week on the stream, in fact I’ve barely seen Fred and Michael out of the creek since we had the workshop, now that’s inspiration.
Soup today is delicious, and is all garden goodies: just harvested marrow (the surprisingly tasty addition) as well as late pumpkin, spring onions, always threatening to be the last but never quite ending crop of bush tomatoes and potato.
Plans are firming up for a new grain garden, a joint project with the local co-op and a new crop of workshops. See the main events calendar to see what’s coming up. Get your suggestions in quick for winter if there’s an event or workshop you’d like to see at the Gardens.
