Permaculture Geelong Blitz Team
Looks a little bare at the moment but we’ve planted pumpkins, tomatoes, watermelon, capsicums, artichokes & parsley. Zucchinis will go in tomorrow & we have a border of beautiful petunias to attract the bees & add some colour.
Big thanks to 13 hard working volunteers who spread half a truck load of composted horse manure that arrived at a moments notice & then removed a mass of weeds to create a pathway.
Looking forward to more PB’s around Geelong!
1500 plants now in the ground at Kiltynane Winery and should have a good start with the rain. Thankfully we didn’t get rained on too much. Landcare puts on a great lunch for the workers and the sun shone to warm us up.
Permaculture Geelong got a special thank you for helping out and getting the plants in the ground in record time!
Slight detour on foot as some of us decided to take advantage of the cellar door before we left. 🙂
What better way to celebrate International Permaculture Day then to start PERMACULTURE GEELONG!!!! Great to see so many people interested in getting this started. Thanks to Wendy & Lorna for organising.
