Cooroy Community Permaculture Gardens working bees

Working Bees are held at Cooroy Community Gardens every Sunday, 8:00am to 10:30am when we stop for morning tea and a chat. A wide choice of tools is available and there is plenty to do. Bring along a hat, sunscreen, gloves, protective footwear and a cold drink.

Quite a lot has been achieved since Permaculture Noosa assumed responsibility for the gardens, with lots more in the pipeline. Come along to see what has been done and what is planned.

The address is: 26 Emerald Street, Cooroy (next to Badminton Hall)

A big thankyou to Val Wilson for supplying the above photos.

Just set some of the straw bales up at the CCPG...and will set the other bales into food forest if not raining tomorrow. My Billy will be helping set into place the arbour on Sunday. I'm using woodchip onto thick cardboard under the arbour structure and will see if this is soft enough for wheelchairs but may top with sawdust to smooth it off. I had a lovely time at the gardens and met another girl who works at IGA. She came in for a look on her way home. I will post these on FB  for the group to feel excited.

With this rain it is locking in the straw bales to grow much food..

Cheers Val

Hi Everyone, Headed into the CCPGardens this morning to start my exciting task to revamp and enhance the Food forest. I look forward to showing the skills I have to transform this area into something productive and beautiful. I'm in close contact with the piles of woodchip -soil so all the landscaping earth I can use like a painters pallet. Woodchip, and then decomposed soil smelling like mushroom compost.

This morning I started the task and was joined by 2 local Magpie's excited to join in the fun. Even go one sit on the trailer and give me a whorble...heehee.

Our land is enjoying this rain and the birds are busy singing when the sun comes out.

Have a great week.

Cheers Val Wilson.
