Cleaning and Improving Cubby Space

We’d like to spend some time improving the area around the cubby to accommodate for the many children who visit it daily, so this will include

  • removing rubbish
  • removing weeds
  • mulching exposed soil
  • planting flowers
  • removing sleepers
    • The good sleepers will be kept for entrance gateway (below)
    • The scrappy sleepers can be used to make more bluetounge habitat around the garden

Sleeper gateway

Make an entrance gateway using the old sleepers, like this.

Chicken house upgrade

We need to build some laying boxes and perches in the existing chicken shed. The needs to accommodate more chickens (somewhere between 7 and 30).

2nd half of Granite path

A pathway has been marked out for a path that runs through the garden. The process will be to wet and put lime down on this space before covering with cardboard and then 5cm of granite. There should be 30cm of extra cardboard protruding out from the path so that our mulch can overlap. all the grass areas in the garden will be mulched. We may re introduce a no-mow or low mow variety in the future.

Prepare sign

Scrape the flaky paint off the sign. Use a sheet to catch paint flakes. Prime the sign for painting.

Fix bocce fence

Please get in touch if fixing fences is your thing.

Sheet mulching

The aim is to eradicate cooch grass form the entire community garden, so once the cropping section is sheet mulched we can work our way in to the northern “Food Forrest” section.
