    Wow been a year since I updated the Community Garden, so as the Garden Competition has just happened again, showing you where we are up to. John raised $53,000 in grants so far which has enabled us to solar power with off grid batteries to the the pavilion, put in a kitchen, 2 tanks, hot water, a 12volt fridge and a pizza oven that is portable. Native Bee Hive, and a Tractor mower.

    The Market gardens at Centro once a month are being manned by about 4 couples, which gives us all a break. Flowers are selling well so glad I thought of dedicating special gardens. Along with 2nd hand books, vegs as we have them, succulents of course always popular. Two new worm farms are being set up as well.

    Wow Kasalia, such a grand looking community garden!
    I love those netted beds! Sort of what I was aiming at achieving at my place but yours look better!
    And that garden gate, reminiscent of an Asian inspired entrance with all those interesting bird houses along the top.
    You've all been so busy, its a credit to your hard work and dedication!
    Well done!
    What happens to all the wonderful produce?
