Permabee at Liz & Morris’s
First up I want to thank everyone who turned out for the “Rain Garden” workshop in July. It was a fantastic turnout and a really enjoyable day. I want to give a vary special thanks to Claire Hanley for all the work she put in with North Sydney Demonstration School to bring it about. Also a big thanks to Lucinda for introducing me to Claire and recommending the workshop as a permabee project. The weather was fantastic as was the great crowd that put in all the hard work.
This months permabee on Sunday the 18th will be a smaller, more intermit days work set in the vary productive garden of Liz and Morris at Gordon. The main jobs on the agenda are converting a pile of brick into a herb spiral, installing two small swales to control the water overflow during heavy rain from a drain. There are two fruit trees that need to be lifted and planted on top of the swales once they are dun as well, and help set up a newly re-cycled chook house in the garden. There are a few other odd jobs if your not feeling up to any heavy lifting on the day.
Morris who is a bit of a chef will be manning the BBQ for lunch, so we should all be well catered for.
In other news the permabee at Karonga school has been cancelled due to ongoing construction work at the school, but we will be back after the Christmas holidays to start off the 2014 school year. This means we have a vacancy in September for anyone wanting some work dun so let me know by filling out the form attached. In fact now would be a good opportunity nominate yourself or a friend for a permabee. Think of it as an early Christmas present.
