Murrumburrah-Harden Garden Moves Ahead
Donations keep coming in from the community to help create the Murrumburrah-Harden Community Garden.
Rita O’Connor said the Kruger Trust is donating skins for the two long walls of fencing.
“Apart from making the fence lines look better, the skins will also offer some wind protection,” Ms O’Connor said.
A group of students from Lauren Masson’s pastoral care group worked at cleaning up the garden.
“They have stacked piles of green waste, ready to be taken to the tip,” Ms O’Connor said.
“A couple of girls came to paint some totem poles.”
“It’s fantastic to have some young people involved.”
“Primary and pre-primary ages also want to be involved.”
Ms O’Connor has been unable to source the correct type of wood for the fence palings, which she was going to have children paint, so she is looking for a replacement activity for the youngsters.
The unique Beehive is coming together nicely. Pavers donated by Ros Bickford may be incorporated in and around the beehive structure.
The group will probably take a recess until after Easter while they wait for their bulk order of 18 garden beds to arrive.
“Then the garden will be a very busy place,” Ms O’Connor said.
“We are finalising the organisation for the path around the sensory garden as well.”
