Other organisations involved in the garden
- The idea of a community garden was originated from Uni SA Occupational Therapy placement scheme where students questioned the community about what their needs were. Being over 25km away from any fresh food outlet as there are no shops in this rural town, it was decided a community garden with fresh, easy to access and affordable produce would be advantageous for the ageing population.
With partnership from the local school this has been a great way of bringing community together.
History of the garden
- This garden space has become a weekly gathering where community meet Thursdays at 4.30pm to tend to the garden, mix and mingle over a cuppa.
- We are looking at running regular “patch to plate” cooking classes where produce will be harvested, cooked and shared.
we have found some produce goes to waste as people might be unsure or not have the facilities to cook or prepare the produce
