Wayside Chapel Roof Veggie Garden Open Day

It received blanket coverage in the media on the weekend.... but in case you missed it, the Wayside Chapel's $8 million redevelopment is complete.

For the first time the local Potts Point/Kings Cross community got a sneak peak at the new buildings, services - and roof top veggie garden.

The weather couldn't have been more perfect. Everything and everyone was bathed in sunshine and the garden looked amazing. All the hard work from our visitors, volunteer gardeners and support from Eden Gardens and Community Greening paid off.

I conducted a few garden tours (that's me in the black dress) explaining what was growing in the garden pots and how the roof's innovative drainage system works.

Then it was time for our local Aboriginal elder to declare the garden officially launched...

And for Wayside benefactor Wotif founder Graeme Wood to plant a lemon myrtle tree in the indigenous garden corner.

Magic day all round. Thanks for coming along.
