A community garden sprouted overnight on Friday, next door to the Daylesford library, and was thoroughly planted in on Saturday, due to some good work by some local folk. See the facebook page here and check out the pics and vids, or even better, head along and check out the real thing. Stay tuned for details of working bees... and a freegan dinner there...
Trentham's community garden next to the railway station had its kick off last Sunday as well. I'm sure it's not too late to join the working group. A bit of inspiration from the kick off notice:
The garden is for you as a gathering space, a place for the creation and display of art and as a living example and experiment in growing local sustainable food and thought.
Individual and communal areas, fruit & nut trees, herbs, perennial food plants, fish, hens etc. the potential is boundless…
Meeting and performance space, cooking and storage, communal facilities. Sharing of knowledge.
