Mid week Food Forest working bee

We would really love some help sprucing up the Food Forest ready for the Sumner Garden tour and will be having a working bee there on Wednesday 22nd November from 9am until 12.30pm. Please come along if you can and help us with a bit of weeding, tidying and general beautifying! Bring gloves and a water bottle.

To find us, enter van Asch school via the main gates on Wakefield Ave and follow the driveway up to the top of the school site. Or enter from the top of the school site through the gate on Heberden Ave where the buses turn around. Please do not drive on to the site.
