The community garden got a grant from Waste Minimisation Innovation Fund (WMIF), which means we can expand our capacity. We have called the social enterprise, Growing Point and our Kaupapa is Growing soil, food and community.
We do a shared kai at the garden every Friday night during daylight saving. We also have the BBQ going from 6pm and when the pizza oven refurbishment is finished (hopefully not too far away), we’ll do pizzas. We are running 3 workshops a month and all the events are on our calendar.
Update 05 February:
Seed Saving Workshop
Dignan Street Community Garden
Friday 7th Feb, 4-5pm
25 Dignan Street
Ellen is running a fun Growing Point Workshop that shows you how to save your seeds, what and when to harvest, and how to plan succession planting. If you’re a beginner or an experienced gardener there will be something to learn for everyone. The workshop is free, but if you’d like to take some seeds home they will be $5 each person. It’s a zero waste event so bring your own small bags or envelopes. Everyone is welcome to stay on for the shared kai that we have every Friday night 5- 7.
