Getting water sorted for summer – workshop 16-10-16

Here are some pics from our water working bee. We had a great turnout and a lot got done too. It was a lovely day to be out in the garden with some friendly locals!

The topic of the day was irrigation – low water use efficient systems that would also be low maintenance over summer. Hannah and Ben from the Council brought a variety of things along to try, including terracotta pots, seep hoses and barrels. We also planted some seedlings and potted seeds, which people took home to care for, as well as potatoes in our patch. We finished up with some delicious apple cake, which Kathryn had made. There’s still a bit more work to do linking everything together and connecting other beds in.
