Come along to any day of the week to the gardens. Tuesday and Saturdays are the busiest days with a lunch by donation on Tuesdays. You can also get involved in a pod. Pods (or working groups) oversee various programs and projects. Get involved in one or as many as you like.
DESIGN AND INFRASTRUCTURE POD
We are embarking on the exciting process of formulating our ideas into a site plan. We are looking for your ideas. Permaculture students & designers, and those with experience in land planning are encouraged to participate.
BUSH REGENERATION POD
Salt Water Creek forms the eastern boundary of garden site. The riparian zone is dominated by camphor laurel and umbrella trees, privot and a wide variety of other environmental weeds. We have committed to restoring the creek edge to local native vegetation using non-chemical, organic methods.
With solstice celebrations, harvest festivals, family picnics, pizza nights (baked in our cob oven) and community education workshops in all things environmental, our events calendar will be exhilarating.
Getting our message of sustainability out to the wider community through a quarterly newsletter, brochures and the internet is a vital component of our community garden. Working in a team with collaborative approach will create an abundant flow of information.
Grant submissions and fundraising activities will be vital to the function of our community garden. Working in collaboration with all the other “Pods” we will keep the wheels turning.
The water pod will be responsible for all issues relating to the capture, storage and management of water on site (including tanks, drainage etc).
The compost pod will ensure that nothing on site is wasted. This pod covers composting, resource capture, and recycling of materials.
FOOD FOR ALL POD
The Food For All Pod will create and manage communal gardens for communal use for shared meals and providing to soup kitchens.
