The semester may be over (except for exams) but we have still been working away in the garden. While it's a slow time of year for plant growth, there is still plenty to do. As well as planting root veggies and plenty of greens, we've doubled our composting capacity (to 1,200L!) by installing larger bins, and put some great new shelves into the shed. Everything is now super organised, and we're going to try very very hard to keep it that way! We've also propagated a whole bunch of herbs, veggies and flowers to put in the garden, sell at the uni's farmers market, and of course give back to our lovely volunteers.
We were lucky enough to have Lara from Free Plants Melbourne stop by and donate lots of seeds to us, which can be found in our seed swap box that we bring out at working bees. There are loads of sunflower seeds so you'll probably see quite a sunflower display in our garden this summer!
