GARDEN CLUB NEWS

On Tuesday, 18th of September, Park Ridge’s Environmental Group went to Stud Park to participate in the creation of Nature’s Corridor, a wicking bed project organised by Stud Park Management and the Knox Community Gardens Society. Ten students organised the scoria, sand, geofabric and soil layers, before creating signs and planting out our bed. It will be displayed at Stud Park for any interested parents to visit until the Stringybark Festival, when it will be part of the Zero Waste concept installation. Park Ridge will be lucky enough to keep our bed after the Stringybark Festival for future use in our growing program. A big thank you to Alyssa Hardware and David Mann for helping get us all there on the day, and to Susan Laukens, Knox Community Gardens Society Inc. President, who organised and presented the material on the day.
