I’m the Environmental Education Officer at City Of Parramatta, NSW. My goal is to support our community through building skills and providing opportunities to partake in the diverse activity of ‘gardening’. I provide our residents with the opportunity to learn new gardening skills through workshops, presentations, and events. I also aim to support groups to build their existing shared garden spaces or create new ones. I’m personally motivated to be the conduit between innovative community ideas around food sharing and growing, and getting council support to make it happen. I’m really excited by the potential for Parramatta to become more food secure and sustainable.
