Join the Multi-faith forest garden at Parkwood Springs

You are invited to join us at the Multifaith Forest Garden at Parkwood Springs on: Saturday 9th February at 11am – 2pm. This amazing space, perched just outside the city centre relies on committed volunteers for maintenance so your participation is truly appreciated and has a huge affect on the local community.

The workday will include mulching fruit trees and bushes, fruit tree husbandry, removal of mulch matting and general maintenance. The garden is really looking great despite the winter conditions and there will be another chance for a guided walk around the garden for those pokies online who haven’t visited before.
