Working bees happen every Saturday morning, and fortnightly on Fridays. Look for specific updates on the home page. 

Feel free to work in the garden any time (see the To Do list below).


Current projects

There's always plenty to do in the garden, whether you come to regular Friday (fortnightly) working bees, or drop in when you have a spare hour.

If you don't know where to start, see if there's something on this list you could help out with. These jobs can be done anytime, by anyone (no expertise required).

  • Weeding, affectionately known as "soil production" around the Pit because we use the weeds for compost and cover the areas we've weeded with cardboard or palm fronds (whichever is on site) and mulch (or just heavy layers of mulch if no carboard available)
  • Tidying up
  • Feeding the chickens some greens from the gardens (with permission of the plot owners, of course)
  • volunteer to go on the Mulch Pit Roster to oversee our Produce Swap each Saturday and be on hand to answer queries about the garden

These items are the Working Bee tasks and require a few pairs of hands and some expertise.

  • preparing to shift the shadehouse to it's new sunnier location.

Mosaic Paver Day

One of the activities the NUC Boys Group have planned in April is a mosaic project for the community garden. We were thinking about inviting the youth group to help us and also some adults for support and assistance.

We were thinking about doing this on Saturday the 24th April during the ususal Mulch Pit working time.

We are looking for donations of colourful old ceramic plates or tiles, so if you have some please see me or Penny Ramsay. We thought we could decorate the pavers for the secret garden. Would love to hear people's comments, ideas or if they can assist on the day!



Organizing a To Do List Journal


This is a journal page (aka blog). We can use it to talk together about things that need doing around the Mulch Pit.
