Open Day 2016 photos

November 24, 2016

The weather was superb and the garden resplendent in its spring glory.

Visitors and members alike enjoyed a relaxed afternoon in the garden, browsed the stalls and sampled the BBQ offerings. The Mayor, some Councillors and a few politicians accepted our invitation to come along and were favourably impressed. Some of us even won raffle prizes!

Success, of course, is due to all the willing volunteers on the day and to all those who preserved, potted, promoted, baked, donated, spruced and contributed in a myriad of other ways to help showcase our oasis in the inner city.

Fruit Tree Pruning Workshop – July 2016

August 30, 2016

Fruit trees are not only productive but they can also give structure to a garden while providing shelter, shade and a food source for wildlife. The eye-catching blossom is attractive to pollinating insects and brings welcome colour to a spring garden.

A successful Fruit Tree Pruning Workshop was recently held at the Garden in conjunction with the City of Yarra and the Mark Street Gardeners. A pruning expert -Sebastian Beck from the Diggers Club gave us an informative talk and demonstrated how a tree’s structure can be improved by following a few simple rules. John raised some practical challenges of the pruning of the fruit trees at the gardens. He has been seen busy pruning the fruit trees recently perhaps expanding on his already extensive knowledge.
