A community garden needs one special ingredient to make it great – community! Everybody in the neighbourhood has something valuable to contribute to this garden and the CottonTree Community Garden is encouraging all local community members to be a part of it. Come to one of our meetings (held monthly on the third Wednesday of every month, become a friend of the garden and share your ideas or skills, nominate yourself for a committee position, propagate seedlings – there are lots of ways you can get involved:

Do you have a balcony, verandah or windowsill that you’d like to grow an edible garden or a community garden plot where you want to maximise the yields in a compact space? Or are you renting and need ideas on temporary, mini portable gardens that you can take with you? Or maybe you are a beginner gardener or family with children wanting to start small with some simple easy solutions?
If you need help and want to learn some simple, easy-to-follow steps to produce an abundance of vegies with a minimum of time, money and energy – then join us at the CottonTree Community Garden for a tips-and-techniques packed practical workshop that will inspire you to get started or build on what you already know:
Presented by Anne Gibson Founder/Publisher of Green Journey and The Micro Gardener(www.themicrogardener.com) Anne will show you how easy it is to make your own potting mix, plant up a salad garden in a repurposed container, plant for year round abundance and through clever design, have colour, beauty and fragrance in your edible garden. Weather dependent, the workshop will include a tour of the community garden plots.
