Walyo Yerta celebrates its first three months by making a teepee

OUR BEAUTIFUL Walyo Yerta garden continues to thrive. An abundance of winter veggies  means that we've all been feeding ourselves silly for weeks on the healthiest food imaginable.

As well, we've just celebrated the end of our third month in existence with a teepee-building workshop. Jo Russell, one of our most dedicated members, taught a group of twenty novices the way to create garden sculptures that are both decorative and functional.  Many thanks to Jo for her expertise, to Chris for the bamboo, and to Jude and Laraine for the glory vine cuttings.

After the great time we had building this first teepee, we're keen to do more on any Sunday that offers fine weather.  We welcome both members and non-members - anyone, in fact, who wants to lend a hand and learn the finer points of this great process.
In other news, a final year student from Urbrae Agricultural College has offered to design an extension

to our garden; we continue to receive positive comments from visitors and formal tour groups, and we will continue to hold "Last Sunday of the Month morning teas in the garden.

TO BEGIN THE PROCESS, CHOOSE AN ODD NUMBER OF UPRIGHTS, AND ENOUGH PEOPLE TO HOLD THEM IN PLACE IN A CIRCLE.
