The day started very early with Matthew McCrum completing the potting benches.  We now have 3 different size benches to suit all age levels across the school.  Matthew also finished off lots of fiddly jobs such as fixing the shed door, bracing the front of the shed, anchoring the bench seat, levelling the potting benches, measuring up the water feature for our pump and installing some 1/2 pallets to hang pots on.  Two Berwick Lodge Primary School Dads, Luke Mackenzie and Brett Fritzlaff came to lay our pavers around the potting benches.  They did a fantastic job of laying the pavers and setting out some stepping pavers along the garden beds.  I was busy painting the surrounds onto the blackboards which are located on the tanks, painting our compost bays and helping where needed.  Thank you very much to Luke, Brett and Matthew for giving up their Sunday to come and help in our School Community Garden. I really appreciate all of your help and support! Julia, wife to Brett and mum to Amelia in Prep M and Amelia’s little sister came for a visit to the garden to see what their Dad was doing.  It is really nice to see famlies in our garden. Luke and Brett will be back on Tuesday to compelete the paving installation and have our garden ready for the open night. Andy, Nicole, Ruby and Daisy Coupar came and planted some sun flowers and donated a small wheelbarrow, concrete animals and plants for our garden. Thanks to everyone for your help today.  We are on count down now for opening!  5 days to go!!!!
