It was decided at our recent committee meeting to cancel our Sunday opening sessions until next Spring.
So this Sunday (7th April), the MVCG will be closed and will reopen for first Sunday sessions at a date later in the year. The reasons for the cessation of Sunday morning sessions include the lack of volunteers willing to open and operate the gardens particularly during the upcoming cold months.
Watch this space for our Spring Open Sunday event!

Supporting Climate Action Initiatives Globally and Locally
We will be opening our gates from 10am until 1pm on the first Sunday of each month in 2019 for anyone in the community who would like to come along and see what we do, tour the community garden, and get involved with activities on the day.
So, if you are unable to come down on our usual opening days of Monday and Thursday, why not call in, dressed to garden, and get involved with our regular garden activities whilst learning how to grow food organically? Activities may include everything from sowing seed, transplanting seedlings, worm farm management, watering, making compost, pruning, harvesting, mulching garden beds and weeding.
We also do quite a bit of chatting and information sharing during the activities.
This month, Jo Dodd of Quarter Acre Farm in Mittagong has kindly offered to give us a talk on “Edible Flowers – Which Ones and How to Use in the Kitchen.”
Simple morning tea provided. Don’t forget your gloves, hat and suitable footwear!!
Download Flyer here.
Just a reminder to our members and friends that the Moss Vale Community Garden will be open this Sunday (December 2nd) from 10.00 am to 1.00pm.
A little bit of rain won’t deter us!
There will be
- a demonstration on worm farming techniques,
- a mini talk on Eco wrap uses,
- and methods used to make them at home.
We will also be doing some transplanting into our gardens and possibly some pricking out of seedlings into punnets.
If we get time and the weather is kind, we may build a compost bay from pallets!!
If you want to know what on earth is a bokashi kit, then come down to the gardens and find out.
Seedlings, plants, jams and beeswax ecowraps will be available to purchase on the day.
All welcome! ?
