Winter 2023 at MGP Community Garden

While many of our members are travelling this winter, those who are here have stepped up and the community garden seems to have just enough hands around. Welcome to new members Wayne and Nikki.

Our outdoor storage shed has been constructed with a huge thank you to David Carolan assisted by Mary Anne and other helpers.

So far this mild winter has already given us some great harvests including cauliflower, snow peas, turnips and turmeric. Broad beans are looking great. Garlic is coming along .. just need to keep the tops from being snapped! Plenty of lettuces and salad greens are doing well.
