Yoorala Street Community Garden was a very interesting place for me to see.  It has a mix of shared community plots and individual plots.  

Facilities including composting and a pizza oven.

They are in the process of installing wicking beds: 

Here's the orchard and some of the plots. 

Winners are grinners.  The raffle winners (a lovely bag and bee hotel - thanks Valerie).

Thanks to Valerie and the Yoorala Street gardeners for a lovely morning!!

It looks like a good sized garden, do they have many members?   Hope you all had a great time.

It was lovely Christa.  They had a pretty good roll up of people for the working bee.  Seems like a pretty good model to me. 

Thank you all for coming to this lovely morning. Our gardens have about 35 members and about 30 plots. It is a great community. 

Thanks for the opportunity to see your community garden Valerie.

Vetiver grass helps to stabilise soil and protects it against erosion.  It can protect against pests and weeds. Vetiver is also used as animal feed. (Wiki.)

The Vetiver Community Project is a plant nursery run by Dave & Keir Riley that harvests and grows Vetiver grass for local community applications and use. It is based in Beachmere, just north of Brisbane, Australia.
