A hat, gardening gloves and a smile is all that is required to take part in the January 22 working bee at Taree Community Garden.

The Summer working bee will start at 9am in a bid to reduce exposure to hot weather and community garden volunteer Bree Katsamangos is appealing for people to come and work in the garden.

“We have beds to dig over and weeds to pull, worm wee to distribute and more!” Bree said.

“Bring gardening gloves, a hat, water and anything you wish to snack on or eat for lunch. Oh and bring a friend too!”

Taree Community Garden continues to expand and now features numerous garden beds, a shaded seating area and recently secured funding for irrigation, a rotary tiller and signage through MidCoast Council’s Stronger Communities Grants Program.

The garden is located in Wynter Street and the entrance is opposite Aldi carpark.
