What an overwhelming turnout for our Inaugural Easter Egg Hunt in our new community garden!

After more than 120 people arrived at the garden this morning, when there was only expected to be just over 50, we had to make some quick adjustment of the plans on the fly, so we truly appreciate everyone's patience, understanding and contributions to help the event go ahead. It ended up being an amazing morning with so much community spirit. The wonderful families were so appreciative and the gorgeous kids had the most beautiful manners. It was a pleasure to be able to hold this free event for the community.

Thank you to all the kids (and Sara) who crafted amazing Easter hats to enter the Easter Hat parade. It was hard to pick our winners, with so many beautifully made hats.

Congratulations to Ed and Zoe for winning the Easter Hat competition! We hope you enjoy your prizes.

Congratulations to Abby for winning the 'guess how many lollies in the jar' competition and for so generously sharing your prize around for all the enjoy. You truly are a little treasure.

Wishing everyone a very Hop Hop Hoppy and safe Easter with your families.

Hope to see you in the garden soon.

There's nothing like the golden hour!

Our test plantings in the community garden are growing so well, with our watering schedule in full operation now, thanks to our Planting Team's fantastic coordination led by Sonya and assisted by Heather and Jesse. Thank you to our wonderful scheduled morning waterers Sharlene, Tam, Dayle, Liv, Desiree, Helen and Ellen.

To enable people with all abilities to join in with our watering schedule, we have installed a modified hand watering option where the hose can be manually plugged into a dripper system, so those who cannot carry heavy watering cans and drag the hose around can easily enjoy the zen of watering as well.

The laying of the poly-pipe and drippers ended up being an impromptu intergenerational learning experience, warming hearts and brightening everyone's day. Just what our community garden is all about.

Our sincere gratitude goes to:

A massive thank you to Anthony, from AP Paving, and Jeff, from Coast Projects, for providing and laying the PVC pre-lay for the polypipe during the pathway construction.

We don't know what we would do without the generosity of Anthony for sharing his time and expertise in also installing the accessible watering system, building our limestone seating and helping some of our mini Padbury Community Gardeners to fall in love with the garden and building reticulation too.

A huge thank you for the generosity from Martyn at Western Irrigation Greenwood and Amanda and Greg at Atkinson's Mitre 10 Hillarys and for donating all the reticulation parts for our community garden to ensure we are accessible for all abilities.

Who would have thought a retic disco in the community garden could be so much fun!!!

Intergenerational learning at its best. Filling everyone's bucket.

Padbury Community Garden's thriving plants!!

Thanks for building our seats in time for the Easter Eggs Hunt Anthony. You are amazing!
