‘Flower Girl Bob’ watches over
Being a green thumb starts from childhood, so that’s exactly what the Gilgandra Community Garden group set out to do last month.
Together the children from Gilgandra Preschool and
members of the community garden group planted
seedlings in the preschool’s garden.
The preschool students gave the seedlings a good watering-in after planting.
The children were overjoyed to be giving a helping hand, and even taught the ‘grown ups’ which plants were which.
But most excitingly, ‘Flower Girl Bob’ was put into prime position. The beloved scarecrow lovingly named by the children now watches over all the newly planted seedlings.
