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.
Here are just some of the goodies donated, cooked, made and supplied by garden members and friends.
Meanwhile the Construction POD working bee continued with some tidying up and sorting of the equipment area.
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.
The raised garden beds were planted out with seedlings from the Vege POD.

Thanks to all who worked, cooked, sold, toured and talked on a very busy Sunday.
Plot Holders POD Working Bee – Sunday 31st August
Local Councillor Geraldine Knapp visited the garden this morning, and reviewed the Raised Garden Beds that were built with funds from the Brisbane City Council.
Thanks to the funds supplied by the council, gardeners with disabilities or medical condition that prohibit them from obtaining a regular plot will now be able to ‘own’ a small piece of the Raised Garden beds at Yoorala St Community Garden.
For more information contact the Garden.
A great turnout on Sunday ensured we had a very successful Construction POD Working Bee.
Thank you to everyone who came on Sunday, including the new potential members and the members and plot holders. Some great work was completed, and it was great to catch up with friends and new acquaintances over a ‘cup of tea’.
Next week: – Sunday 29th June – ‘5th Sunday’ Plot holders Working Bee. Keep an eye out for an email.
