Saturday volunteers 5th September

With the official arrival of the Spring Season in September, volunteers met at the Mid Mountains Community Gardens to get the Spring growing program underway.

The first activities of the session were to weed garden beds, fertilise with organic ‘blood and bone’ fertiliser and re-mulch bare areas with straw mulch.

With the continuing dry weather, volunteers needed to water crops, including newly emerging broadbean seedlings protected under the straw mulch in garden bed 5.
