Term 1 2012 – Taming the jungle

The week before term 1 began I wandered down to the orchard after an absence of several weeks over the holidays, to find an overgrown jungle of weeds. Thanks to the rainy summer I was free from weekly watering duty and the trees were all happy, but the weeds were even happier! I emailed our garden crew to say i was going to try and clear the area before the term began and wow what a great response – lots of kids and parents turned up and whipped that orchard into shape in a couple of hours. Fantastic! It never ceases to amaze me how much a group of people can achieve. For one person that would have been a long and tedious job, instead, we all had a great time and got the job done.
