I was a little unsure where to post this, only because once we harvest the proceeds will be going to charity, but since we're still in the growing stage, i thought here was the most appropriate board!
Anyway, my bestie decided a while ago she wanted to create a community garden that grew veggies for charitable purposes, and i just get so excited by growing things, i couldn't help but share with everyone on here!!
It started as a long, skinny, weed infested patch of ground behind the local library...
The tree in the middle of the frame is actually an ancient lemon tree that we figure has been there since the dawn of time!
The weed clearing began...
The tree in this pic isn't the lemon tree. This tree is the one thats to the right of the frame in the top pic... does that make sense? Just to give you some scope of the size of land we have been kindly leant by the Prospect city council.
All cleaned up now!
The weed mat has worked a treat, considering what was all over this place when we first arrived!
We got beds! (and tiny sprouting plants)
In the bottom left corner are some onions my friend had already been cultivating!
Right down the back you can just make out our trellis compost bin!
Now we have plants!!
Broccoli at the front and tomatoes up the back!
Better shot of the tomatoes!
Thats no all there is tho, we've got all sorts of herbs, garlic, capsicum, potatoes, onions and of course the ancient lemon tree!
oh and this is our gorgeous mascot Sproutling...
