First TD Gathering for 2013

1 January, 2013 at 12:47 pm Leave a comment

For our first gathering of 2013, we are teaming up with Urban Reforestation, who are hosting a workshop called “The Art of 522310_249619015161542_82743805_nCommunity Gardening” at the Old Apple Tree. It will be more of a discussion than a one-way workshop – people with all levels of experience and interest are welcome – whether you are an old hand or just finding out about community gardens.

If anyone has not come across the Apple Tree before, it’s a bit of a local icon. A very big, very old apple tree right next to the railway line which has been lovingly documented by photographer Cat Wilson, and adopted and given a new lease on life by locals including TD members and people in the neighbourhood, most recently led by Urban Reforestation members, who have spruced up the area, adding seating, a planter box and other plants. And started a facebook page for the Apple Tree.

After the workshop there will be a hands-on working bee, giving the apple tree and surrounds some TLC.

And then a picnic which will double as our first TD gathering of the year. Perhaps we may even bring out the TD banner, which still needs a little more painting to be complete, and features our apple tree inspired by… you guessed it – the Old Apple Tree.
