Wicking beds for Community Garden

The Rotary Club of Mosman donated $2000 to Mosman Community Gardens which enabled them to purchase 8 plastic IBCs (intermediate bulk containers) to be converted into 16 wicking beds. The old beds are made of wooden boards and eventually rot. Also, a wicking bed allows for easier and more efficient hydrating of the soil. Several members of the Club, led by Community Service Director Suri Jain, went to Mackie Lane Community Garden on 3 Wednesday mornings to help engineer Chris Lee to dig out old beds and install new ones. As a result of these visits, several members have decided to join the Garden.
