Saturday volunteers 12th September

Volunteers gathered at the Community Garden on a sunny and warm early Spring day for gardening and socialising.

Gardeners started by fertilising remaining garden beds with organic blood and bone fertiliser and watering vegetables with a foliar application of Seasol nutrient supplement to boost Spring growth of plants.

Crops were watered well with the continuing dry weather, but vegetables are growing rapidly with the warm Spring days.
