Busy as a (working) bee

workingbeenov2016Spring has almost passed and what a lovely few months it has been! We kicked it off with a truly beautiful and busy Festival of Joy filled with great local music, delicious food, inspiring workshops and great company, not to mention the glorious weather and the blossoms! Thanks to everyone who was involved in making it such a special day!

We held our first monthly Sunday working bee with a great turn out. We blitzed the medicinal herb garden, shared treats and conversation, followed by an epic wood fired pizza session, with Kim from Cherrymoon leading the way with her incredible sourdough pizzas! These sessions will continue to be held on the 1st Sunday of the month, the next being Sunday the 4th of December from 10am. Everyone is welcome to come along and get involved. Please bring some gloves, hat, water bottle and something to add to woodfired pizza!

We are excited to have Steve Fleischman running a monthly seasonal kitchen garden workshop on the 1st Friday of the Month.  The next one will be on Friday the 2nd of December from 9 am-12. Steve has worked around the world with various forms of  gardening and it is his mission to get everyone growing food! He has such a wealth of knowledge to share whether you are wanting to brush up on season gardening tasks or start your first garden. Workshops cost $20.

On Sunday 27th of November Lloyd Sharp is running a Medicinal Gardening Workshop  from 10-1. This will be the first of a 2 part series focusing on planning, preparing and plant knowledge. Lloyd was instrumental in designing and creating the existing medicinal herb garden along with many other aspects of the community garden. He has a wealth of knowledge to share and is offering this workshop for free! He is also involved with the Blue Mountains Seed Savers Network and will have some seeds available for purchase on the day.

Finally, we continue to meet every Friday from 10am. This working bee is open to everyone whether you need some space to grow food, you want to learn or just make some new friends. Come along and join in:)
