SA Water provided a much appreciated New Year’s gift to our community garden by arriving on the morning of New Year’s Eve (a week earlier than expected) to dig trenches and connect fittings so that we now have direct access to mains water.
For all our dedicated gardeners who have been laboriously carting water by buckets and watering cans from the tank, there is now a garden tap, and attached to that is a hose long enough to reach all garden plots – just in time for the hottest part of summer!
The next step is to put more taps around the perimeter of the garden. SA Water generously left some fittings to help complete this task.
In the interim, happy gardening and happy watering to all our growers and their helpers.
