The ‘Art in the Garden’ event in July was a great success, and the result is now visible on the Common Growth fence on Sandbourne Rd! All the beautifull letters and flowers that were painted by children and adults alike have transformed the entrance to our community garden.

Hopefully our new ‘look’ will inspire many more enthusiastic gardeners to come and help out in the garden 🙂

We now have a bounty of delicious vegetables growing in the raised beds. Come and claim your rewards for an aftenoon of helping out in the garden. There is always plenty to do!
