We would like as many members as possible to come to the next general meeting. There will be quite a few important items to discuss.

Wicking Beds – Materials

We have finally been advised that our request to Bunnings Stafford for material to build six wicking beds has been approved.

We now have to decide their location and prepare the site for their installation.

Herb Garden

A new herb garden has been setup in one of the old bath tubs. Next step will be to build another one in a similar tub.
