Stage 1 of Buxton Community Garden is complete!! What’s next? We are planning two workshops on basic composting and building water reservoir, raised garden beds (wicking beds) – information coming soon. Both workshops will be in September.
Stage 2 of our community garden will see more raised garden beds, building our meeting area, establish a three bay compost bin system and worm farm.
Again I would like to take the opportunity to say “thankyou” to all the locals, community groups and businesses who sponsored and supported Buxton Community Garden!!
Children of our Town say "Thankyou" to local businesses who sponsored and helped make Buxton Community Garden a reality
With the generous free use of a 'Dingo' (thanks to Picton Hire), Buxton Community Garden stage 1 build was much easier
Building the first raised garden bed which will be turned into a wicking water reservoir garden bed

Down tools. It's lunch time
Old black plastic garden pots, reused as planted seed markers - a permanent silver marker was used
Stage 1 build of Buxton Community Garden is completed - two raised garden beds built and a large planted area (netted to keep birds away)
