Lyneham Commons Food Forest Working Bee

May 7, 2017

10:00 am To 2:00 pm

Lyneham Commons, Lyneham, Australian Capital Territory, Australia


Event Description

Lyneham Commons is a community run public food forest in Canberra, Australia. Established in 2014 by a motivated group of Lyneham residents, everyone is encouraged and welcome to be involved in the running of the project and our monthly working bees, with various activities throughout the year.

The Commons is committed to providing a growing space for the local community to grow our own food by employing sustainable organic methods and permaculture principles. Our goal is to regenerate public land, improve food security, provide education, reduce agricultural impact and grow food for the benefit of all.

This weekend we’ll have a wide variety of activities at our working bee. We’ll be working on improving our soil by planting out green manures, digging in composted manures, chopping and dropping acacias and applying calcium and egg shells.

We hope it will be a great opportunity to learn about the different ways we are working to improve the soil and forest floor in our food forest. As always, our knowledgeable Commoners will be there to explain the how and why of our soil improvements at Lyneham Commons.

Hope to see you there!

Please bring:
– lunch to share
– gloves
– forks, rakes spades
– wheelbarrows
– hand tools
