July News

 
Last weekend there was a fabulous attendance at the Sourdough bread making workshop with Emma.
If your a Facebooker you can see on our page how those who attended used Emma's method at home. Due to popular demand we'll be getting Emma back to do this again sometime.
In the meantime, things are pretty dormant in the garden, except the coriander and broadbeans. Its still a nice place to be a sunny winters days.

The garden wants your feedback. Yack Community Garden SURVEY

Last week we sent a SURVEY out to all the subscribers on our email list. The survey is to help us gather ideas about how to develop the garden over the coming year. If you haven't already completed the survey, please CLICK HERE to fill it out electronically.
 
Alternatively, you can wander down to the garden and find a hardcopy on the food swap table which you can complete while you watch the broad beans grow.  
 
Stay warm and we'll see you at the solstice party!

Saturday sowing


Thanks to the volunteers who turned up last night to the garden.  You may notice when going passed that we removed more of the tomatoes to a big pile on the foot path.  These will be removed in the next week, but in the meantime you may be able to forage plenty of ripe toms still in the pile.  My two helpers also dug up all (we hope) the potatoes.  Some are Dutch Cream or Cream Gold, the others are a purple variety.  They can be used just the same as white potatoes but turn mauve when cooked.

Because we got side-tracked and dug the spuds, we didn't get around to sowing root crop seeds.  I have prepared some of the beds so plan to go to the garden in the morning at 10am to get in as many as possible.  If you can spare half an hour or so then, I would love some help and company.  Many hands make light work!

Hope to see you there.

International gardening community - Seeds of Change

You have to love the gardening community and the long reaching arms of the internet.

Today we were approached by the  Seeds of Change  organisation in the USA to use one of the photos taken of our weekly harvest, below.  They are a great organisation that offers grants to USA based community gardens and school gardens / farms. Take a look at their site, and cast your vote for this years grant applicants.
