24th March 2020 Corona Virus COVID-19 Update for DEG
The DEG open day planned for this Saturday the 28th March has been canceled for now.
Other Events scheduled on the calendar will also not be held.
Take sensible precautions and keep gardening.
Some gardening will continue on Saturdays at DEG until conditions change.
You are welcome to come and join us if you are well and want to work and learn, but please be sensible.
*Keep yourself informed and abide by the social distancing measures announced by the government for the common good.
*The Library has closed, so there will be no toilet facilities available at the garden until further notice.
Keep gardening at home!
You could save seeds from foods that you eat. Plant them to grow seedlings at the right time for each kind of plant. A good guide for Perth conditions can be found at www.greenlifesoil.com/when-to-plant-guide-perth
We are a community garden on public land in the City of Joondalup, in the northern suburbs of Perth, Western Australia. Our Community and Garden are based on Permaculture Values (Ethics and Principles).
Earth Care, People Care, and Fair Share.
We value sustainable and regenerative living.
DEG people meet every fortnight on alternate Saturday mornings between 9am and 12 noon
(on opposite weeks to the Poynter Farmers Market).
You are welcome to come and garden with us.
The Calendar of events to the right shows when we meet next.
The garden is located at the forecourt of the Duncraig Library,
Cnr Warwick Road and Marmion Avenue, Duncraig
and within the Percy Doyle reserve precinct.
This map shows where to find us.
If you have profound disabilities and want to give back to the community by gardening, you are welcome to come down one Saturday morning on a DEG day accompanied by your parent or carer to talk with us. Please remember we are not a service provider. We are not able to help during the week. We are all volunteers giving our free time on the weekend and valuing helpful help.
We acknowledge the Whadjuk Noongar people who are the traditional custodians of the land on which we meet. We acknowledge and respect their continuing culture and the contribution they make to the life of this city and this region.
