Do you want to know more about what flowers are beloved by bees, when flowering seasons occur, what’s in flower in spring for bees, and learn more about bee-friendly species?

Come along for a very interesting and informative walk and talk with Anna, the botanical beekeeper, to see trees and flowers, admire leafy streets and look for bees in action on their favourite flowers.

We will be meeting at the Community House and venturing out around town on this floral foray walking adventure!

Camperdown Community Garden Gaining Momentum

The community garden is going from strength to strength, following the successful project funded by FRRR Gardiner Dairy Foundation in 2018-2019. This project saw the introduction of a new colour coding and communication system, installation of new accessible wicking beds and the reparation of existing infrastructure including improvement of soil quality of existing garden plots. Read more about this project HERE. The life and community of the garden continues to grow and flourish.

In September we made four garden plots available for private lease and encouraged new members to get involved. Two of these plots have now been leased, with the remaining two currently “under offer” as they say in Real estate, pending confirmation of the lease.

This is really exciting for everyone who is currently a member of the garden, as new members bring new ideas and energy, and contribute towards building our sense of community in the garden space.

We have introduced a new membership form/application and guidelines to help streamline the membership process.
