Working bee at the Big Potato revamp

Robertson Gold - a bag of freshly picked Robertson potatoes - on sale today as a fund-raiser for the Big Potato Revamp project. Thanks to Judy and Allan Hollis and all the volunteers who helped out today and yesterday, and who donated their services, and plants, and who donated funds towards this community effort.
Girl Guides from the Moss Vale troop (many are local Robertson girls), turned up to assist the other volunteers in completing the basic landscaping around the Big Potato in Robertson.
The weather was warm and sunny, which was fantastic. On other days, people might have been less keen to get out and about, shovelling road base material, or carting mulch around in buckets.
A path now encircles the Big Potato. This hard surface should make access to the Big Potato easier, especially in wet weather.
There is another path which leads around the back of the park, amongst the newly transplanted Japanese Maple Trees and tall Weeping Cherries.
It was a happy group of people, kids and adults.
Allan and Roden are planting Camellias on the eastern side of the park.
