2012 Sydney gathering — February — Randwick CG

We’ve got lots to show!

Now THIS is a rainwater tank… and a work of community garden art. The artists with their work.

Randwick Community Organic Garden will give us a brief outline of their Committee and operating structure, a tour of the garden, our Permaculture principles and layout, solar and battery system, chooks, biopod, a range of composting systems, water storage and distribution and aquaculture.
We also would like to talk about plans for a National Gathering in Sydney next October and set up an organising group.

Tell all your community garden friends to come along!
