It was a busy day at the garden on Sunday, with the BCC Community Conservation Partnership Breakfast event on in the park next to the garden, the Construction POD Working Bee and a stall selling goodies on behalf of the garden to the visitors from across Brisbane.

The BCC event attracted in excess of 100 visitors, many of whom took the time to tour the Yoorala St Community Garden – both officially and unofficially.

To add to the excitement of the morning, a Tawny Frogmouth that seemed unwell was also found resting in the Garden. After some investigation he was picked up and taken to the local bird vet.  At this point the condition of the the bird is unknown.
