Cairns community garden update

@JCU Cairns community garden update

Call for plant donations, and garden planting guide now available

The new guide has been put together by Jay Jackson, the Garden Coordinator, with help from past and present students and staff, and members of the Cairns community.

Community garden members can use this diagram to guide their garden activities including sourcing stock, seed collection and propagation, and planting out the garden. The Planting Guide is a living document that will be updated regularly as our community garden evolves.

Please also let us know if you are able to donate any of the plants required for our garden.
