Bunnings BBQ 4th Aug
Reminder about the upcoming BBQ at Bunnings Marion, Thursday 4th August. Yep , a Thursday once again. Neville has his sterling Flash Mob “regulars”– but would like to hear from others. (You won’t get sunburnt). Take your pick, first shift, 07:20-10:30am second shift, 10:30-01:30 and the last shift 01:3pm-04:47. Email him now on firstname.lastname@example.org for a bit of productive fun. These BBQs are REALLY good for Glenelg North Community Garden, they give us the flexibility to do the projects we want (like fix the *;/x?x*! pump which is now problematic and the projects on the Activity Day below).
Activity Day – Saturday 6th August
Lots to do. Would everyone arrive 09:00, bright eyed and bushy tailed. 12:00 is time for the last soup task.
– Brick path laying.
Clear the area. Measure and define path with string. Dig / smooth the area, lay a dolomite base, role smooth and firm, lay bricks including the odd mosaic
– Extend pipes to all plots
Under Bernie’s technical direction, connect pipes, bury pipes, test.
Under Pam’s horticultural direction, plant seeds, plant cuttings, put them where they will be happy.
– Tidy the shed
Under Pat’s superb orderly mind, tidy up the shed, find anything to add to the throw out pile, label things.
– Soup, bread and cheese eating
Under Pam’s amazing culinary direction, light the stove provided by either MDD or ND, Heat, serve and eat. Everyone needed for this task.

There is a cost of $10 per members for this workshop. We have a few Community Garden trees we want grafted. The session will include successful techniques. Thanks Sally.
