Garden sharing its success

WITH the weather warming, the green thumbs have been extra busy getting ready for the Yamba Community Garden Open Day.

Lower Clarence Community Garden spokeswoman Carolyn Fox said everyone was invited to come along to enjoy the garden and meet the members.

A barbecue lunch will be served between noon and 1pm for a gold coin donation, complete with freshly harvested organic produce grown on site.

"Our chef extraordinaire, Eric, will tempt our taste buds with wood-fired pizzas and hamburgers," Ms Fox said.

"The public will be offered a tour of the garden, as well as for-sale items, such as worm juice, chilli potion (to ward off bugs), and organic seedlings of summer vegetables and herbs.

"Garden tips and tricks will be shared. Marvel at some of the unusual edible plants, such as taro, curry leaf tree, different herbs and their uses."

There are a number of vacant beds still available. Inquire on the day.

The garden was officially opened in Wattle Park in April 2011 after receiving a $50,000 grant from Northern Rivers Food Links and $10,000 funding from the Clarence Valley Council.
