Today we went along to the Macarthur Centre For Sustainable Living for a free workshop on how to make scarecrows. Here are some photos of the process.

Our scarecrow had two faces so it can keep an eye on the birds from all directions.

We had a look around the centre and its veggie garden for a good location to erect the scarecrow. We picked and tasted some of the veggies and strawberries growing in the garden and met the chickens. In the end we decided the peppers needed protection from the birds.
