After a few weeks of welcome rain and with spring just around the corner, the weeds are growing strongly so this working bee is a perfect time to get them back under control. But its also only 6 weeks to the village Open Garden where eight of our gardens will be open to the public (check out the details on our OGV2019 page here) so there's another level of excitement this time.
These and others plants which were planted outside Whistlewood and Badgers Wood were kindly supplied by Yarra Ranges Council (thanks Aaron Roberts) and arrived just in time for the working bee. Great job, Coral, to organise this with Aaron!
Outside Abbotsley, it was really about pruning to keep the road clear and restaking the young Golden Rain wattles with two wooden stakes rather than the one star picket that was there before.
Further along Bickleigh Vale road, Homeleigh is looking good with Russel's re-mulching and the pot holes in the road from the recent rain have all been filled as part of our regular maintenance program.
And as always, getting together for morning tea is a highlight of the morning - this time in the Devon Cottage carport.
Another very satisfying village working bee!
