Working Bees

Working Bees are a great chance to get your hands dirty and learn about gardening in the tropics. Facilitated by our experienced gardeners Dirk Peek and Lia Gill, they plan activities that you can join in with, or otherwise come and do your own thing.

Working bees are a great chance to meet other members, learn practical skills and share knowledge. Past activities have included setting up a wicking bed, pruning plants, taking cuttings, planting, weeding, setting up a garden bed and mulching.

Working bees happen regularly on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th Sunday of the month from 4:30pm to 6pm.

You are also welcome to come down during the week (Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings) and help garden.

Bring along your gardening gloves, drink bottles, sunscreen and closed shoes and help us build our garden beds!
