HAVE A GARDENING QUESTION?

Not sure what to plant for the current season, want to ID that bug in your garden, or need to know more about cover crops?

The Master Gardeners have a great teaching demonstration garden set up permanently in the South-East corner of our community garden!

Every Tuesday morning from 10 am – 12 noon you can visit and ask them a gardening or pest question, see whats growing and get some great ideas and information.

You can also contact them via email or phone:

As a CSG Member you must fulfill and log 15 x service hours by August 31st each year, per your Gardener’s Agreement. It’s very easy to achieve and helps keep our lovely community garden maintained and looking good.

Attend our Second Saturday or Last Thursday workdays where there are plenty of community jobs allocated on those days.

Check with your Row Leader what needs doing near your Row OR there is a monthly Task List posted here and on the garden kiosk noticeboard near the main gate. So if you need to contribute service hours outside of workdays, you can easily log an hour or two each month.

Happy gardening!
