…Also known as the GJ Gardener Homes Community Garden
With seed funding provided by GJ Gardner Homes in 2016, the Maydale Social Garden is supported by the Centre for Participation and managed by the Horsham Ag Society, providing a space to upskill and support people of all abilities.
The land for use has been offered to provide a space for school students to learn about a garden environment and also for the community to participate in whatever capacity they find.
The land situated at the Horsham Showgrounds which is on Crown Land is managed by the Horsham Showgrounds Committee of Management with the day to day operation by the Horsham Agricultural Society (HAS) who as such, are project managers of the GJ Garden Homes Community Garden.
GJ Gardner Homes have made a significant contribution for this to be an ongoing project, so while the opening is May 20, local schools and the community are welcome and encouraged to continue using the space for the remainder of the year in the years to come.
We hope to have ‘farm gate’ sales with the profit given back to the society to enable the continuation of the project.
Currently the school students involved are from St Brigid’s College Year 11 VCAL and Grades 3/4 at St. Michaels & St Johns Catholic Primary School.
