Murramarang Community Garden group keeps growing

Nov 14, 2011 by

Grant funding of $4,400 has helped the Murramarang Community Garden group to construct 32 new garden beds using pine sleepers. A windbreak has been planted using 250 plants raised from seed and plants from the local area. Beds have been filled wit

h vegetable-mix soil and the first crops harvested and shared.

The new group has successfully completed the establishment phase of its development. There are now 60 members of the Community Garden group drawn from the communities of Kiola, Bawley Point and Termeil. The membership consists of people aged 4 to 87 years, achieving their aim of inter-generational diversity. Secretary, Judith Carroll, said “working bees have brought our community together with people of all ages. None of this could have been achieved without this grant and our community is enormously grateful.”
