What’s happening in the First Creek Wetland’s ‘settlement’ pond?An alga has been growing there that hasn’t been recorded in Adelaide for many years.

In the City Crop we’re growing a special type of heirloom sweet corn called True Gold.
True Gold takes 14 weeks, or 98 days, to reach maturity which is why we’re holding Harvest Day on 1 February 2015, exactly 14 weeks after planting.
As well as tracking recommended maturity times it’s important to check each cob before harvesting.
On Harvest Day our volunteer farmers will help us check the cobs to make sure we only pick those that are ready to eat.
Whether you’re joining us in Adelaide Botanic Garden or harvesting your own sweet corn at home there’s a few things to look for.
