Home made cake – reward for hard work

By: Laurie Deacon

Our Sunday working bee on the Pollinator Link Garden at Mt Gravatt SHS went well.

New parents and kids joined us! It is such a pleasure to watch city kids getting in touch with nature, getting their hands into the dirt and planting the future.

Eating Sheamus’s fresh baked cake was nearly as good as planting six each of the Wombat Berry Eustrephus latifolius, Native Sarsaparilla Hardenbergia violacea, Scrambling Lily Geitonoplesium cymosum, Black She-oak Allocasuarina littoralis, Grey Gums Eucalyptus bitturbinata, Acacias and Brush Box Lophostemon confertus. But much better than weeding and shoveling mulch. All washed down with steaming hot cups peppermint and black tea to warm the hands at the end of a very productive day.
