WAVERLEY Council's order to remove a five year old footpath garden in Bondi, reported in the Wentworth Courier, brought a community response on social media in support of the garden's continued existence.
The Australian City Farms & Community Gardens Network produced a letter to Waverley Mayor, Sally Betts, proposing options to retain the garden and to use the solution as a means to reform the way council deals with public complaints so that
the process is open, transparent, democratic and on the public record.
Councillor Betts responded and you can find her response in the comments below.
