Past Events

Seed Swap for Spring Seed Swap for Spring

We will swap and talk about seed and then have dinner. Please bring along a donation for dinner - some fresh bread and fresh vegetable soup, plus whatever others bring to share!

It doesn't matter if you bring a lot of seed or not any seed. Part of the joy of seed swapping is increasing the varieties you have to plant, and its also about spreading genetic diversity and creating more interest in growing and saving seed. Perhaps that seed that you pass on this year, will turn into seed that you get back a few years down the track when you really need it. Its a great way to meet new people too.

We also have our regular working bee on at the Garden from 3.30, so please feel free to come along earlier and say hello, have a look around, or give a hand.

Building a Bee Hive Building a Bee Hive

This Sunday 2nd August at 1pm the newly formed Bee Club is having a public workshop on how to set up a bee hive. If there's enough interest there may also be a bulk buy for hives and gear that you can be part of.

National Tree Day at the Community Garden National Tree Day at the Community Garden

We will be working on a secluded seating area at the front of the community garden. We will mulch out the seating area and be planting all around it. The trees, shrubs and understory will be a mixture of natives and useful non-weedy plants, which will provide a number of functions.. increase biodiversity, provide native habitat, attract pollinators, provide useful crops and reduce our community footprint, provide privacy, beauty, and ambience, reduce maintenance, and create a needed and useful space at the community garden.

A BBQ lunch for all participants with fresh salad from the garden will be part of the day too. Please bring your own gloves, appropriate footwear and clothing, and a smile!

Tool Maintenance Workshop

Local horticulturalist Bill Killick will lead this workshop. We have a stock of tools at the Community Garden to practice on, and you are also more than welcome (thats kind of the idea) to bring your own gardening tools along from home. We'll be sharpening, oiling, and maintaining tools, and maybe even learning how to use them better. A gold coin donation is appreciated, but not required.

We have regular working bees and get-togethers on Tuesdays from 3.30 - 6pm and the last Saturday of every month from 9am - 1pm; and other events and workshops at other times. There are spaces for anyone to garden at any time and plots that you can rent. If you're a new gardener we will put you in touch with someone who can show you what to do. Local schools also use the Community Garden. We have an email list that you can join by emailing snowygrowers@gmail.com, or find us on facebook - Snowy Growers Swap. You can also give us a call through our local hospital on (03) 5154 6666. It's a lot of fun! :)
