Preserving and pickling fun!

Community Garden Members Moira, Anne and Diny were invited to Ann and Andrew’s place in Moss Vale to convert excess produce into preserves for the upcoming winter.

We made plums into jam, green tomatoes into chutney and apples into dried apple rings.

We will share some of the bottled produce with our general membership and sell the rest on our market stall, next time we venture over to the Railway St Farmers Market on the greens.

 

Moss Vale Show 2022

Once again the Moss Vale Community Garden has demonstrated the benefits in organic gardening.

Apart from the amazing fruit selection, we scooped the ribbon for the ‘Best Vegetable Exhibition” and First Prize in the compost section.

Congratulations to the MV Community Gardeners, a great team effort!

Confirming we are open

Here’s a quick update about our Garden.

 

Moss Vale Community Gardens are open to the public on Mondays (10.30am – 4.00pm) and Thursdays (9.30am – 5.00pm).

Visitors will be required to sign in, hand sanitise and wear a mask in the enclosed areas.

 

We have potted flowering plants, seedlings, preserves and eco wraps for sale.

There is so much to see: worm farms, compost piles, bog garden, anti-aviary filled with heritage fruit trees, ripening berry bushes and various vegetable garden beds

Apple Tree Relocation

The Garden had to move some heritage apple trees to make room for a new fence with the tennis club. Here’s the pictorial story:

  1. Waiting for relocation >>>

2. Preparing the new beds to receive the apple trees into the anti-aviary >>>

3. On its way, slowly! >>>

4. Carefully removing the tree from the front end loader >>>

5. Placing the apple tree into the prepared garden bed >>>

6. All done. >>>

In the end, we have happy trees and relieved gardeners.
