The day may have been wet and overcast but the feeling at the first birthday celebrations was anything but damp and dreary. People turned up armed with their umbrellas and raincoats as well as a sunny disposition to help Rochedale Community Garden celebrate its first birthday celebrations!!!
Attendees enjoyed the sausage sizzle, cafe and listening to the jazz trio. There was also the opportunity to buy home-made craft, jams, condiments and plants. Those brave enough also participated in a conducted tour of the garden.
It wouldn’t be a birthday party without a birthday cake. Thankyou to Alderman Schrinner and MP Ross Vasta for doing the honours in cutting the cake. The final part of our celebrations was the cutting of the ribbon by Alderman Schrinner to open the newly installed compost toilet – ROGER short for Rochedale Organic Garden Excrement Recycler!!
Where did those past 12 months go??? Looking forward to the next 12 months with eager anticipation!!
