Spring and end of lockdown are bringing us together again. And the gardens, verges and laneways and welcoming Transition Bondi’s volunteers.
Seedlings raised on windowsills, balconies and our hot-house are now putting down their roots in the garden beds.
At our recent October working bee we harvested celery, lettuce and silverbeet – such vigorous and trusty plants to grow.
We replanted the beds with leek and carrot, tomato and zucchini seedlings.
The compost was extracted and put on a couple of the citrus trees, in nearby Imperial Avenue.
It wasn’t just people who needed haircuts – we also gave an overdue trim to some shrubs and other plants drooping along the paths.
Our mid-week volunteers braved the heights of the banana palms to remove the big drooping buds – pruning, to reduce the size of the future harvest, to create better quality fruit.
Everything is growing well in the Spring, as the air and soil warms up.
Such a time of hope and future imaginings.
