1 Jul 15 – Working bee Sunday 5/7/2015

Hello everyone,

This Sundays working bee will involve finishing off the new mulched area and taking care of a few maintenance issues. We will start at 10am.

We will need rakes and forks to move the mulch.

Please be sure to bring your safety shoes, work gloves and water.

Work on the brick machine is in it’s finale stages, very exciting. Its booked into the hydraulic shop this Friday and booked into the paint shop next Thursday. If all goes well we will be pressing bricks next weekend.

Warm regards
UCG Committee

18 Jun 15 – This Sundays working bee 21/6/2015

Hello everybody,

Last working bee we prepared the soil for the next tier of garden bed.
During the past 2 weeks the Uralla Shire council kindly donated and delivered another approx 50 cubic meters of mulch that needs to be spread. The piles were dumped in position so that the mulch wont need to be barrowed, just spread out. We are going to need all hands on deck (many hands make light work), if you could make it this Sunday that would be awesome, even if just for an hour :).

You will need to wear your working boots.
If you have a gardening fork to bring along that would be great if not that’s okay too.
Don’t forget your gloves and some water.

Kind Regards
UCG Committee

Hello everybody,

We will not be holding a working this Sunday.

Our main focus at the moment is with engineering the compressed earth brick machine, it is quite a large complex project and is requiring our full attention. We will take some photos of the progress and post them on Facebook.

We are also planing the pond, pond fencing and looking at extending the garden areas in the coming months.

Warm Regards

8 Apr 15 – Working Bee 12/4/2015

Hello everyone,
This Sundays working bee we have a couple of exciting things in-store,
Firstly, there is quite a-lot of mature seeds in the garden that we want to collect and save. We intend to create what is called a good bug mix or shot-gun seed mix. We will create packets of seed to supply other gardeners.
I (Darren) have been saving seeds professionally for the past five years , so if you have any questions on how to save your favorite varieties year in and year out this will be a great opportunity to do so. Continue reading “8 Apr 15 – Working Bee 12/4/2015”
