Koha Garden working bee with Adam McGrath

Koha Garden working bee with Adam McGrath

What a great working bee at the Koha Garden at 108 Stanmore road.  It was a good day to kick off Spring after a very rainy few months, and to revisit the site and community members.  To fuel the efforts of the crew, and celebrate in general, a BBQ, coffees and free soda from the dairy were enjoyed by all.  Flowers were in bloom, the veggies were cranking and Adam McGrath (from the Eastern) was onsite spinning a yarn and a song or two!!  It was awesome 🙂

Adam Mcgrath spent time in different parts of the city over a few weeks in September as part of his  a “Sit In” project. Adam is hearing stories from the communities and creating songs around them!

Many hands make light work, in this case; two truckloads of stones to battle the soggy driveway, a newly painted picket fence was erected, weeding and painting to tidy up the area and some new plantings were made.

It was great to see everyone, many thanks for a great day and to Adam for great tunes and coffee!  We look forward to Adam revisiting the site to record and then perform over the coming months 🙂
