New Tank Installation : The garden is having the best season ever at present after the rain, there are free herbs for picking, and residents are invitied to join the pickers for vegetable etc by paying the annual $30 fee.

A new 58,000 litre water tank funded by the Office of Gambling will provide for the need for water in the future. The Garden Group is raising funds for the community contribution to the project to provide the base. So pickers fees will be greatly appreciated.

The weather has been kinder this year with more rainfall and more produce is on the way in the garden.

While there are more greens our fruit trees suffered in the storms so there will be little fruit from the mango and avacado, citrus however is well protected and more limes, lemons and mandarins are on the way.

North Arm Cove residents and locals from Tea Gardens and surrounds had their questions answered about compost and worm farms at Scraps to Soil gathering facilitated by Kirsten Banks from Mid Coast Council on the 17 Nov. The aim of the workshops is to reduce the land fill of which kitchen scraps account for approximately 30% in the red bins of the Mid Coast area. Note that we are not supposed to put scraps into the green bin as there is not yet a composting facility, however there is one in the planning stages.

A few things about worms...
