Working Bee Photos
Thank you to everyone who helped with the first Dereel Community Garden Working Bee in November 2016.
Approximately 20 people helped out on 26th November, 2016 to do a huge amount of weeding, and plant the first garden bed—a flower garden in front of the entrance to the Dereel Soldiers Memorial Hall. Cuttings were taken from the lavender bush, for replanting, and clumping plants divided.
Here are some photographs from the day:
This garden bed collects rainfall and has been designated as a future wet garden.
Just a sample of the the variety of weeds to remove.
Many hands make light work, as they say.

Overgrown clumps are dug up to be divided and replanted.
Some of the established plants were reluctant to move.

Gardeners of all ages got involved on the day.

The first garden bed to be completed is a welcoming flower garden near the Hall entrance.
Stepping back to admire a good job, well done.
