Harvest Swapmeet at the Food Garden

This season we have been having our monthly swapmeets at the new Daylesford Community Food Garden on Albert St next to the Library.

Swaps take place during the monthly working bee for the garden so we have the advantage of doing a spot of weeding and planting at the same time.

These two events go together perfectly because we can plant any left over seedlings that people may bring or compost any of the left overs.

 This month we harvested a whole heap of potatoes from the food garden during our working bee so these were handed out with all the other gorgeous offerings from people's home garden.

 Gardeners made a little retaining wall out of pruned fruit tree sticks.
