We have achieved great things. This week has been a fantastic display of meetings, food and mad dashes to Ceres, a whimsical hunt for hidden chocolates and mud dirtied fingers and toes. Our first general meeting has moved us towards boosting community involvement and engagement and ideas for a fresh lick of paint for the sheds corrugated walls.
The Bee started with a walk between the rows of the garden beds, glints and glimmers catching the eye. No, before you ask, the chocolate wrappers didn’t hold their shape for long but in their place we found a nest of new plants settled in their tiny portable pots - natives, greens, beans, leafy things...the edible bits that keep you going in the winter cold. Things for soups, things for bread and dips and things for tea. The sprightly morning trip to Ceres Environment Park Nursery, thank-you to Pippa and Jess, was highly successful and will render the garden eternally productive throughout these cold oncoming months.
And while we are excited for the oncoming crop, a formal note of appreciation must be made to the ever fruitful zucchini vine and stoic chili bush of summer gone. You’ve been great. You can fruits for as long as you like. We won’t judge you for it.
