Strawberries and Raspberries, Quinoa Sourdough, Childers Cove Herb Goat’s Cheese, fresh Snow Peas from Nick and Organic Apple Juice. #warrnamboolcommunitygarden

Lovely Spring weather for the potager ... an eclectic mix of veggies and flowers growing nicely. The Pumpkin has been planted in a Strawbale Garden and is doing very well.. #growitlocal#warrnamboolcommunitygarden#potager#kitchengarden#veggiesloveflowers.

The Mindful Gardener is able to be in the present in communion with all their senses and the garden around them. Our Community Herb Garden is where the Mindful Gardener can sustain her attention on the garden and support her health and wellbeing where everything from the smell of the Rosemary , Lavender , Sweet Williams, Love-in-the-Mist , the Olive Herb or the Curry plant can be good for the body and mind too. It is intended as a calm space for mindfulness and wellness in a busy life with the soft colours , smells and sounds that take you to another place even for just a few minutes.... while watering this morning I was mindful of what Mother Nature had intended. #warrnamboolcommunitygarden#communitygardens.

Small space gardening... using an A Frame to grow Tomatoes on one side and Climbing Beans and a Cucumber fitted with a net sharing the other side. #whitesthinkingoutside#warrnamboolcommunitygarden#aframe#tomatotrellis#beanandpeatrellis#trellis#potagergarden#kitchengarden#growyourown.

Purple King Climbing Beans popping up their little heads. Beans are always a little tricky at this time of the year as they like warm soil and our Spring weather here can be so indifferent often giving you a false sense of security... 19deg.C today and 31deg.C predicted tomorrow and then rain.....so here goes with testing the waters, so to speak.. Seeds from Lambley Nursery #climbingbeans#purplekingbeans#seeds##kitchengarden#potagergarden#warrnamboolcommunitygarden.

A Community Garden Lunch today after a good morning’s work .... plenty of cutting back and watering in the Herb Garden and a bit of paint to an old table to add a pop of colour to a garden space.

Still trying to finish packing...... so a very quick update about what's happening this weekend.
Saturday (tomorrow morning) I'm at Port Fairy Community Market in my usual spot near the Information center.
Sunday I'm running a Herb Workshop at Warrnambool Community Garden (details on a previous post), where I will be discussing and showcasing some amazing and unusual culinary and medicinal herbs. A lot are very rare.
At Port Fairy I will have a phenomenal range of fantastic edible and medicinal plants especially rare and unusual. Tomorrow the rare and unusual section will be HUGE! If you're looking for a special plant come have a look.
I will also have my products from Place of Gaia which continues to grow at a phenomenal rate. Customers are absolutely loving the range available and all the things you can do with herbs once they are dried....... Hope to see lots of eager people this weekend wanting to expand their knowledge of the plant kingdom!

Our Head Gardener Daniel is a hard task master and was seen here checking out the newly planted raised bed of Tomatoes 🍅 at the Community Garden this morning .. He helped move soil in his little wheelbarrow, helped Marilyn liquid feed the Sweetpeas and Asters , mix up some Seasol and Worm Tea to settle in the newly planted seedlings and managed to fit in a couple of lolly bananas to keep up the energy levels after his early morning swim lesson. Such a busy man...I never did find out if the tomato plantings passed his scrutiny. #warrnamboolcommunitygarden#tomatoes.

There was plenty of action , music and laughter under cloudy skies at the Community Garden this morning with many couples and families cleaning up their plots , removing spent crops and prepping garden beds for Spring plantings..... the wheelbarrows got a workout too carting manure and straw with the music of John Denver echoing across the garden.... now that does brings back memories of times gone by. Their was plenty of activity in the Mud Kitchen too with Chamari's kids setting the table in the Shelter and preparing a Calendula Soup and Calendula Cupcakes for us to enjoy! Love a child's imagination! #warrnamboolcommunitygarden#communitygardens#cultivatingcommunity#spring#plotholders.

Gardening gives you so much pleasure and it's the little things we get excited about....... So pleased to see the first flowers on the Jostaberry while watering this morning....we planted this as part of a Fruit Tree Guild (or mini Food Forest) near our Community Herb Garden last Spring.... still young and will start fruiting consistently when it's three years old. #warrnamboolcommunitygarden#jostaberry#fruittrees#communitygardens#food forest.

The Warrnambool Community Garden hosted 80 St.Pius Primary School Students over two sessions today for a tour of the garden..... the brief was to cover topics about design , light , soil types and plant nutrition , garden spaces , water / moisture , seasons , pests, crop rotation and companion planting. Interactive tours included the Bush Food Garden , Herb and Sensory Garden, Food Forest, the Chook Hilton , Worm Farms , Hothouse , Strawbale Garden and the Communal Plots.... thank you to the staff and students for a very enjoyable and enlightening day. It was a pleasure to have you visit. #warrnamboolcommunitygarden#cultivatingcommunity.

A day for indoors at the Community Garden this morning with rain curtailing any outdoor activities so we spent the time grinding up the Chillies 🌶that we had been drying from our Summer Harvests...... the Long Chilli Joe’s and Thai Chillies were made into Chilli Flakes and the small whole Thai Birdseye Chillies were put into bags to share with members... our little gardener in training Daniel helped harvest the Globe Artichokes in the Herb Garden between rain showers. #warrnamboolcommunitygarden#chillies#chilliharvest##chilliflakes#artichokes#globeartichokes#communityherbgarden#herbgarden

This Heirloom Purple Headed Artichoke is making a spectacular display in our Community Herb Garden at the moment. The attractive globe Artichoke has stunning purple and green flower heads ( chokes ) with beautiful silver blue foliage and was grown from seed @jardindefleur.seeds last year. We grow quite a few Artichokes of both the green and purple varieties along a line to act as a living barrier and windbreak to protect the Herb Garden from the very cold South Westerlies we endure over our Winters. These gourmet chokes are tender and delicious when cooked. #jardindefleurseeds#warrnamboolcommunitygarden#purpleartichokes#herbgarden#aplaceofwonder#marieseconursery#communitygardens#kitchengardens#organicgardenermag#gardeningaustraliamag.

Grapevine cuttings ready to plant out as a living fence at the Community Garden..... these cuttings have been taken from an existing vine and have been propagated in sand in the shade house until we were ready to use them...utilising something we got for nothing except a litttle of our time. It's a table grape, the label long gone and no record that we can find of the variety planted. This year is the vines third season having spent the last two years being trained up a post of a pergola next to a shelter in the centre of the Garden.... with a little TLT we might actually get a crop....fingers crossed. #warrnamboolcommunitygarden#tablegrape#grapes#livingfence#grapecuttings.
