March News

Hey Gardener,

Creativity is flowering this year at the Fig. The sound garden is taking shape, mosaics are being laid and sculptures are appearing. Sounds like the makings of an exhibition – Sculpture at the Fig!

Green Drinks in the Garden

Wednesday night 21 March from 6pm brings local enviro minded people to the garden for their bi-monthly Green Drinks event. These events are normally held at Customs House, but they are breaking with tradition and combining a tour and talk at the Fig with a few drinks and a BBQ. Green drinks events are about folk who work and think environmentally, downing tools, swapping stories and just relaaxxiinng! All are welcome.

Working Bee

Sun 25 March from 10am

The eggplant and zucchini fritters at the last working bee should be incentive enough to get a fair crew back for this next one. There are plenty of winter crops to be planted out and plenty of compost to spread. We also want have a chat about a few ideas emerging for this year. If you would like to be at the sharp end of the community garden development we’d like to have a chat with you on Sunday. Nothing formal (God forbid), just a chat about how we might direct some of the energy bursting out of you.

Metal Garden

A new comer to the garden – Barry (and Noelene) has brought with him access to a fantastic resource. Barry works for Simms metal recyclers and he has been delivering metal in various forms to the garden including water pipe, wire, sheets and odd shaped off-cuts, which lend themselves to be sculpted. Thanks for coming along Barry and Noelene.

The metal man standing near the kids club house was erected at the last working bee. That little kid magnet was donated holus bolus by local artist Tom Ireland.

See you at the Fig,
