22 Oct 14 – UCG Updates

The Uralla Community Garden committee feels that the lack of a clear and bold sign for the garden is a main issue at this point. So we have decided to build one right next to the notice board that is already there. We are thinking to use 3″x6-8″ boards ( or there abouts) sized timber to carve into the name of the garden set onto two posts. We are asking if anyone has any of this timber they would like to donate to the project, money to go towards the material costs ( or future projects) and/or experience in this type of woodwork. We are also open to any other ideas or input the community has towards this. If you would like to donate money, the UCG has a bank account with the following details. Other donations please reply to this email or come talk to us at a working bee. Continue reading “22 Oct 14 – UCG Updates”

8 Oct 14 – UCG Compost Worm Workshop

This Sunday we will be building a compost worm farm in a bathtub from scratch. For the purpose of breeding up and to use the casting for multiple purposes. As compost worms are one of Dave’s favourite topics he will be taking us through his understanding and experience with these intelligent amazing creatures. Depending on numbers and how we are feeling we will probably spread a bit more compost as well to prepare the vegetable beds for watering.

So please bring water, thick soled enclosed work shoes, hat, gloves and sunscreen and if convenient garden fork, shovel and wheel barrows. As usual we will have some spare tools on site.

So come one come all this is going to be a great day to learn, create and share in the wonder that are WORMS! 😀

Kind Regards,
Uralla Community Garden Committee
