Event Description

Two lucky families who attended the Logan Eco Action Festival in June, won prizes in the Logan Food Gardeners' raffle which included a one-hour working bee to be delivered by LFG members for each family.

Our first prize winner, Carol, also won a one-hour consultation with an LFG garden mentor. Colin Westwood advised Carol that a large native tree needed to be removed before her working bee should proceed. Carol's working bee will occur later in the year.

Our second prize winners Maree and her husband are ready for us to undertake their working bee now. Their garden is an established one with a large ornamental rainforest area. The garden also boats an established orchard and a number of vegetable and herb growing beds. There is a large stone fruit tree which needs careful pruning, two mango trees to be thinned and vegetable and herb beds which need weeding, as well as general garden cleaning. Maree also expressed an interest in initiating a garden on their verge.

Maree and her husband have nominated four possible dates and times for their working bee:

10am Saturday 20 July

2pm Sunday 21 July

10am Saturday 27 July

2pm Sunday 28 July.

Please RSVP if you can assist at any of these times and use the comments section to nominate the time/s when you would prefer to attend.

Please nominate the work you could complete confidently and list the tools you can supply to complete that work.

On the chosen day, please bring the clean tools you will need, your own protective gardening gear and some morning or afternoon tea to share at the end of the working bee. 

In 2013, LFG members have already undertaken one very successful working bee. Let's make our second one as effective and as much fun! See you there!

Just wanted to ensure everyone saw this thank you from Maree and Jason Hannay who won second prize in our LEAF raffle ...

Hi all, thank you all for attending the working bee at our place. Even though Jason only turned up for the food it was super awesome how keen every one was. It was great to meet a new bunch of gardners that live locally. Just need to mow now and the place will look great. Thanks junior gardners!

Had alot of fun today, especially getting involved with the kids!
learnt how to prune trees, now to put it in action!
How fast the time went, and finished with a nice morning tea :-)
Thanks everyone!

I had a really enjoyable couple of hours with friends this morning (only one hour of work and the rest chatting over morning tea).  It was really satisfying to get in and prune a couple of mango trees and the garden beds looked great after they had been weeded.  A big thanks to everyone who came and helped out.  Thanks to my kids for being so well behaved and for helping to move the pruned branches.

Well organised Liz.  Thank you

Thanking everyone! from our youngest volunteers to those who were too unwell to actively participate today. In an hour, we were able to weed three beds and prune three trees as well as collect the garden debris we produced so it will be convenient to mulch it. Thankfully the rain stayed away and we shared morning tea and some plants and cuttings. Look for the photos I have posted to check out how much we were able to achieve for Maree and Jason in an hour!

I'll rely on some testimony from our youngest volunteers, to sum up:

Riley: 'That was fun, Mum!'

and Hailey asked: 'Yes, can we do that again?'.

The weather forecast for Saturday is for rain to a few showers ... if the day dawns really wet, we will postpone it to the following Sunday (next most popular) which is currently expected to have cloudy weather according to accuweather ... if I don't have your mobile number, please text me your number (my number is listed above) and I will update you via text on Saturday morning. Thanks again! Liz
