This VERY short notice opportunity has opened up back at the orchard we were going to have the July Pruning Workshop at … before it was seriously rained out!
We’ll be helping Neville, the owner, with more winter pruning, possibly apples & grapes this time.
A great opportunity to help out and gain some skills at the same time. Just rock up at the orchard.

SCHOOLS’ TREE DAY at Mundaring Primary School, last Friday 29 July. Students from Kindy to Year 6 commemorated Schools’ Tree Day by planting activities with their buddy classes in the Early Childhood Centre. The day was extra special because it was the first event in which members from Mundaring in Transition (MiT) assisted. Many thanks to Barbara Shepherd and Ken Graham, the volunteers from MiT.
Our July movie event is a movie about the effects of the globalisation of the fashion industry and some very unsustainable practices.
CLOTHES SWAP & SOUP
We’ll be starting earlier at 6pm with some crusty bread & homemade vego soup (gold coin donation) and a bit of a Clothes Swap. So bring along items you no longer need – kid’s, men’s or women’s. Could be perfect for someone else. It’s a great way to recycle.
MOVIE AT 7PM
Join us to share your excess garden produce, fruit, seeds, cuttings, plants, gardening magazines etc.
Bring things to share, take what you can use.
No money, just sharing.
Don’t have anything to share? Then bring along something for morning tea, or just bring your smile!
Email us if there’s something in particular you are looking for.
Runs every third Sunday of the month.
The perfect movie to motivate us for Plastic Free July (and onwards). It takes us on a journey to one of the most remote places on Earth, Midway Atoll, to uncover the truth behind the mystery of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. Along the way, scientists, celebrities, legislators, and activists shed light on what our society’s vast consumption of disposable plastic is doing to our oceans, and what it may be doing to our health.
Coming up next Wednesday. Our super interesting discussion about where to stash your cash so it does some good for the Planet & you! Now, more than ever, it really matters what we do with our hard-earned cash.

House backs on to Sawyers Valley Oval (park at Oval)
Bring something tasty to share for morning tea.
Lots of good ideas here. Sally & Mike are both artists at heart: a potter and stonemason (he built the fab pizza oven at Glen Forrest Community Garden). This is Mike’s take on Permaculture author Linda Woodrow’s chicken dome tractor. The chooks do the pre-cultivation & fertilisation, then he plants vegies on the spot after the dome & chooks rotate on to the next quadrant. Works a charm! Also, their first edible garden enclosed by impressive rendered strawbale walls.
