It's time for a report about the Mid Mountains Community Garden.
We have achieved many of our goals and are following processes of community consultation at monthly meetings and we are preparing the ground at our site on the private property called Kihilla in Queens Road Lawson, the Blue Mountains. See maps, photos and useful articles on www.wiserearth.org/mmcg.
It might be interesting to note that we have moved from a Steering Group of volunteers whose function was to find a site and negotiate a lease with the assistance and auspicing of the Mid Mountains Neighbourhood Centre... to a collection of teams who focused on specific areas: Admin Team, Communication Team, Resources Team, Garden Design Team and Education Team.
Our next step will be a Management Committee made up of two volunteers from each team.
Wish us luck!
We are indebted to Peter and Gwen Adkins and the Church Army for our five year lease and their valuable assistance and support AND Louise Sutcliffe who is the hard working Mid Mountains Community Officer.
