Helping out back in Chippendale

Posted on

Yesterday I headed back to our old stomping ground to help out Michael Mobbs garden the nature strip along Myrtle St. A small but committed group turned up, and we cleaned up one side of the street, including planting a few more citrus trees. If you feel like you missed out, you can still help out next weekend (details to be posted shortly on the Food for the Future blog).

One of the highlights was chatting to Robyn Williamson, from the NW Sydney Seed Savers group. She also kindly shared some plants from their community garden, and I’ve now got chilli  and celery in my garden. I was also very excited to get some Warrigal Greens seeds, which I’ll plant out in spring.

I’d love to rework our streetscape here in Lewisham, watch this space…
