Community Garden Working Bee
Saturday 9th May, 1-3pm
Please note that working bees will now be held on the second Saturday of each month from 1-3pm.
me along to the Community Garden this Saturday and help us get some crops in before the cold comes. It will be lots of fun!
Aims: plant garlic, prune pomme fruits, make compost, plant broad beans, plant potatoes. Prep plots ready for adoption :)

Community Garden last month. The event was a roaring success with live music, delicious punch and food, fun circus gear for the kids, lots of great company, and beautiful warm weather. 
Growers Group Lunch and Honey Tasting
Sunday 17th May, 1-4pm
It's always a bit of a surprise how quickly the garden slows down after the summer rush of abundance - a reminder that it's probably time for us to slow down too. And snow! That amplifies the message!
Our next gathering is coming up for lunch and honey tasting at the garden of Penny and Glenn.
84 Wellesley Street
(or 443 Huon Road)
Penny and Glenn will include a tasting of their beautiful honey.
If you have your own honey to contribute to the tasting, bring it along. Bring something to share for lunch, and if you have any excess produce, seedlings or anything you want to swap, share or sell, please bring it for our trade table. As always, there is no need to have gardeny things to swap and share to gain entry! We want YOU.
I look forward to seeing you then. 
Please contact me for queries and offerings to host us some time for our gathering on the third Sunday of every month.
With warmest regards,

Upcoming door knocking about a South Hobart Community Bank®
A number of South Hobart residents are working hard to establishing a Community Bank® in South Hobart. A Community Bank® is effectively a Bendigo Bank branch that is owned and operated by a locally owned company that splits its profits with Bendigo Bank and the community. This model is designed to ensure that a large proportion of banking profits come back to the South Hobart community to support fabulous South Hobart projects and people. The Bendigo Bank will support the establishment of a South Hobart Community Bank® branch if there is enough community support. PLEASE show your support by liking our Facebook page, switching your branch code to the South Hobart Community Bank® branch code – 72168, moving your accounts to Bendigo Bank or pledging to buy shares in the local company when it begins operation. They will be door knocking over the coming weeks but feel free to call Steve Harwin (0415 183424) if you would like to know more about the project or Keridan Taylor (03 6283 5613) from the Hobart Bendigo Bank to ask any banking questions you may have.
