Qld report — May-June 2018

Winter crops in bloom

Damian Gillett

After a quiet weekend away in the hills of the Lamington National Park, I took the opportunity to call in and see the team from the Beechmont Community Garden. Met the lovely Laura who was busy on the BBQ and got a little insight into what they are up to.

New compost infrastructure is the current project and is coming along nicely. Also got to try some local produce and buy a few crafty knicknacks at the community markets.

There is a bevy of Community Garden’s hosting various workshops over the next few weeks. To many to mention here but keep your eyes pealed on our website and Facebook pages.


Northey Street City Farm

Winter Solstice is happening at  Northey Street City Farm on Saturday 23 June, from 10:30am. There will be talks and workshops fro adults, kids and youth.

Q&A — new ideas

I am now introducing a Question and Answer section to the report. In this area I will place a question and welcome all to offer feedback. And, it’s also a place to ask me a question.

First question

If you could start a garden from scratch, what’s the one thing that’s a must?
Until next time, life’s a garden, dig it.
