GIY Series
Don't miss the second workshop in our Grow It Yourself series on Saturday, June 29th from 10-11am.
Do you need help identifying which bugs are helpful in the garden and which ones are not? Find out if you are inviting unwanted guests into your garden and how you can tempt beneficial insects to join you instead! 
Speaking of bugs!

As the season unfolds, we're discovering more unwanted guests in our garden beds. You'll find further information in the garden shed on identifying and controlling pests.

Garden Housekeeping

As the temps rise, so do the weeds! I'm asking gardeners to help pull up weeds growing alongside their garden beds and gather any loose straw on the pathways.

Just a reminder that the garden has a carry in, carry out policy. It would be helpful if you could bring home your used plant containers. Thank you.
