Edgeworth David community garden, Hornsby.
The Edgeworth David community garden
is a work in progress. The garden is evolving with fruit trees, vegetable gardens, a swale ( a drain that slows down rain runoff ), compost bins, worm farms, tool shed and a place where people can come to together to grow food.
These pictures are of Volunteers from Catholic care centre
for people with a disability working in the garden. The volunteers work each Thursday for a few hours. Recent projects involved planting potatoes and late season winter vegetables. Each week the team waters the vegie gardens, add food to composts and collect food harvest from the garden.
Some of the tasks the volunteers are working on over the last two weeks
- started another compost bin,
- fertilised all the fruit trees,
- planted seedlings of leeks, carrots, and spring onions
"We’re thoroughly enjoying our work in the community garden. Jim is a great mentor and an absolute legend!"
