Good news for green fingers!

Sustainability Street Bondi Junction in association with Waverley Council & Transition Bondi are proud to announce PHASE 1 of:

Waverley Park Communal Garden!

…And you’re cordially invited to the BIG DIG: 9.30 – 4.30, Sunday 22 May 2011, St Mary’s Ave, Bondi Junction (by the netball courts in Waverley Park)

This initiative aims to be an educational facility for all things gardening related and will be a learning experience for everyone involved. As it is run by the community, for the community, please bring all or any of the following:

  •  A delicious plate of food (for a shared lunch break)
  • Plants (seasonal veggies and herbs to plant in the new raised garden beds)
  • Wheelbarrow (for shifting mulch)
  • Gardening gloves
  • Trowel
  • Skills, smiles, kids, ideas, energy and musical instruments!

A bit of background…

Have you noticed any of the impromptu “verge” garden veggie patches springing up all over Sydney? At last we city folks are beginning to learn that ‘fresh from the garden’, organic foods grown on our very own streets is a delicious possibility! Not only is this great for our tummies and taste buds but also our wallets, fitness, community and local environment. It’s win-win all the way!

Bondi Junction’s local Sustainability Street Group in association with Waverley Council and Transition Bondi will be installing 4 raised veggie garden beds on Sunday 22nd May in Waverley Park, and running the day as a series of casual hands-on workshops, in order to show interested locals how to build a raised garden bed, create a no-dig garden and grow their own food – city style.

We’d love you to join us!

Our Mission: To grow Waverley’s Community through Gardening
