Greetings Gardener,

Annual General Eating Sun 27 May

Rather than your typical working bee, the last Sunday of May is a little formal. We’re coming up to 2 years on the site and it’s time to sit back, pat a few backs, look at where we’ve come, talk about the future and feast. It is also a chance for enthusiastic people to step up to the plate and take on a few important roles, like “Bean Counter”, “Grant Grabber” or “Workshop Wrangler”. There will be a fair spread for lunch and you are welcome to contribute a dish but are not expected to. Kids as usual are essential.

This will be a fun day and a chance to cross paths with the many hands that make light work at the Fig. I hope you can make it. It goes like this:

10am: Potter in the garden.
11am: Chin wag, plan and pat backs.
12pm: Prepare to feast
Arvo: Could be interesting!

Margot Rooney has donated a great collection of gardening books to the garden. Virtually tripling the library. They are currently in the container, but we hope to make them more accessible more of the time. Thanks Margot.

In response to last months notice a couple of people expressed an interest in a Friday afternoon after school gathering. So we’ll put it out there now.
Friday afternoons from 3pm – gardening (or playing). If you are up for it, let me know (email or ph.4927 6766) and I will ensure you have access to a key for the container.

The 24th April 2007 was a sad day for Fig Tree and it’s companion Beanstalk Organic Food Coop. One of the founders of the Coop, Louise Micallef passed away in a car accident. In honour of Lou an olive tree has been planted at the garden. Look for it on the clubhouse side of the Bocce Court and spare a thought for Lou. She was a huge character in a little body having an immense presence in the world. With speed to the next life Lou. We will miss you dearly.
