There is no better time to enjoy your garden than the warming months of Spring!! This fact was truly evident at the Springtime In The Garden celebrations on 19th October at our community garden. The gardens were in full production and the weather was perfect to exhibit the pleasures of Rochedale Community Garden. The visitors were totally engrossed in what was on show!!

The visitors were able to take home freshly picked garden produce with a “gold coin” donation. There was also unusual produce to sample like Jaboticaba fruit otherwise known as Brazilian Grape Tree. Workshops were on display including small wicking beds in broccoli boxes and visitors were shown how honey is harvested from our stingless native bee hive.

There was also time to relax and have that tea or coffee or sausage sizzle while listening to the jazz band.
