Dig In puts in new raised beds

Dig In community garden had a mega working bee today to install several new raised modular garden beds. They were going to get new brick beds to match the old, but couldn't find a bricklayer willing to take on the task.
The beds are highly water efficient using the 'wicking' technique which is explained here.
The mix of gardeners reflects today's Port Melbourne - long term residents, people from Beacon Cove and further afield. There is a mix of expertise too: landscape architects, engineers, a former farmer, teachers and horticulturalists.
Dig In is in Murphy's Reserve - more or less opposite Beacon Rd.
