Permablitz #166 in Flemington
What started off dubiously, with morning showers and max of 11 degrees, Melbourne’s weather turned out a typical ‘4-seasons-in-one-day’ for our Stage One Sat 1st Nov Permalbitz at Norfolk Terrace, in Flemington (a 24hr residential rehabilitation program for people experiencing mental ill health).
Lead by Dylan and Jo from The Desert Echo on behalf of the Farnham St Neighbourhood Learning Centre, many hands made light work on this day, as seen below.
Today we were able to create 2 ground level garden beds and 2 raised wicking garden beds made from pre-cut, untreated pine and lined with expensive ‘$40-50/m pond lining material’, with a central, circular arbour (yet to be fully constructed).
What a great day we all had with a great lunch (please see annotated pics below). We are all looking forward to the next stage to complete it! Great work everyone and thanks to the leaders were able to source the funding necessary for it and instigated it.
