'Come along to Fig Tree Community Garden on Sunday 31st July at 10am for our monthly working bee plus a free community art workshop. The workshop, titled 'Birds with Bling', is for children and adults and involves making a nifty bird shaped decoration for your garden. Please wear old clothes as we'll be using enamel paint. The workshop, and working bee, will be followed by one of Fig Tree's famous wood fired pizza lunches.
Birds with Bling is part of Seed, a community project initiated to involve the local community in the planning of an upcoming Garden mural project. The mural, to be painted on the side of theCroatian Club, adjacent to the Figtree Garden, will have a Community Gardentheme. People from the local community, or in fact anyone interested in organicgardening, art or community gardens, are invited to come along and discuss thequestion ‘what does Fig Tree Community Garden mean to you?’
Sunday’s workshop activities include painting decorative imagery onto wooden bird shaped cut outs; these shapes can then be attached to garden stakes, hung from trees or wired onto fences. This is a family friendly event, so feel free to bring yourkids.
