Visit from Gardening Australia

This Wednesday we welcome Costa Georgiadis and Sophie Thomson from Gardening Australia to The Mulch Pit for an afternoon of telling stories, poking around the garden and filming with our friends from the Op Shop and Frilly's. We'll be showing off our brand new garden shed and amazing labyrinth walk, as well as showcasing our wonderful community.  Come and join the bearded gardener for a yarn and a hug, between 1:30 til 3:30pm.  All ages welcome.

Friday Friendzi - May 26

A big working bee planned this Friday evening from 5:30pm. Bring your gloves as we clear out the Shadehouse, saving only that we wish to put in our whopping great fantastic amazing new resource facility (aka shed!)
Be part of the excitement as we ditch the trash and prepare for our big move very soon. See you Friday from 5:30pm.


Saturday Platter Day - May 6

The beds are bulked. The seeds are ready. All we need is you!
This Saturday morning from 8am why not come down to the garden and get involved with Dry Season Seed Planting. We'll be planting okra, tomato, cucumber, egg plant, basil and more. Then afterwards enjoy a well earned coffee and cake at Frilly's + Nightcliff Uniting Church Op Shop.
Get involved in your community garden and you get to share in the harvest. Our motto is 'if you plant, you tender, you pick'.


'Community Chef' Cooking night - Friday April 7

Join us at the Mulch Pit Outdoor kitchen this Friday from 5.30pm as we prepare and eat a 3 course meal based on green paw paw: soup, mains and desert! Bring a plate of food for our shared meal together or make a donation.
Hope to see you there.


Vision for 2017-18

Footings of the new TMP Resource Facility (aka Garden Shed) laid March 2017The Mulch Pit recently held it's annual Dream and Scheme gathering with lots of favourite moments shared and ponderings about future possibilities. The Visioning document for 2016-17 which emerged from our converstion reflects what it is we have achieved and have done well over the past year which fits within the three overarching permaculture ethics of Care for Earth, Care for People, Enough for All. We also reflected on what we didn’t do so well or what we could do better, within the limitations of our resources and capacities. Some of these reflect hopes and dreams for the year ahead.  Be sure to check out the document here and jump on board with our dreams and schemes.
This week also signalled the laying of the footings for our Resource Facility which will house our garden tools as well as provide a workshop and meeting space.  This has been about 3 years in the making, so it's a big relief to have the building start.
Next week, Nightcliff Uniting Church will hold it's annual AGM.  Penny put together a great report to present at the meeting which you can download here
