First TD Gathering for 2013

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.

Festive Season Gathering under the Apple Tree

We are going to have a get together under the old apple tree that resides between Croxton and Northcote stations on the railway sidings.  We thought a leisurely afternoon picnic under the apple tree, with BYO everything – rugs, chairs, food to share would be the way to go.  So come along and catch up with fellow transitioners, and check out the old apple tree that has been nurtured by some TD members to bring it back to its former glory.

Date:  Sunday 4th December

Location: under the old apple tree, Cnr Beavers Road and Herbert St, Northcote (railway line sidings)

Time: 2-4pm

Everyone is welcome, even if you haven’t yet been involved in any of our activities, we would be very pleased to see you there.  No need to reply, simply pop the date into your calendar and mosey on down to the apple tree for a lazy Sunday afternoon picnic.
