Garden buzzing

CORONAVIRUS didn’t deter 18 healthy volunteers from doing the first busy bee at the Inglewood Mt Lawley Community Garden last Sunday.

Since Stirling council approved the garden in May last year, 470 people have signed up to transform the patch of land next to the Inglewood Bowling and Sports Club on Stancliffe Street.

“The garden design has been delivered to Stirling council this week and we hope to have shed construction underway within the next couple of months,” garden committee member Roslyn Park said.

“Mulching and composting are currently taking place and the committee has worked towards a final garden design and water access points.

“…We have also been volunte ering for two months at the Inglewood on Beaufort Monday night markets, encouraging correct use of the newly installed industrial compost bins.” Ms Park said they hadn’t set an opening date for the garden, and were focused on building the shed.
