post Home Lost in Fire

A  William St home was destroyed by fire today. Leigh Creek Fire Brigade acted promptly  but unfortunately were unable to stop the fire from spreading to the entire house in time as the water access point in William St was in disrepair. Hoses were fed through to Murray St and the fire was contained, much to the relief of concerned neighbours.  No one was hurt.

post Local Green Thumbs: The Chapel

March 6th, 2008

Filed under: Greening Copley — newseditor @ 8:00 pm


The first local green thumb profile is on the Chapel of the Eighth Sister, Mission of St John. When the Chapel was established in 2005 in Murray St, there was an established mandarin tree flourishing on the underground septic nutrients, a young kurrajong, a bougainvillea, some young natives and a very old grape.

In the past couple of years a successful mandala permaculture garden designed by Carrie Ann has provided several seasons of fresh organic produce, currently producing a variety of summer melons (centre image). The above ground beds have been rejuvenated each season through layering of soaked goat/sheep poo, soil mix from the Leigh Creek depot ($35 trailer load), soaked cardboard and homemade hot compost (more on that later) – much the same as making a lasagne. Crops in the vege garden have included tomatoes, chillis, nasturtians, herbs, brocolli, cauliflower, and edible greens such as kale, lettuces and rocket. (more…)
