Community Garden update from the Gawler Community House

 


We have recieved news from the Gawler Community House that the Community House Board decided at their last meeting that they would no longer pursue the Community Garden to be located on the parklands at the rear of the Community House.

News is that there had been issues with the council giving permission to have the soil tested as was required to progress with changing the land behind the Community House into a Community Garden.

The Community House has decided instead to create a Kitchen Garden within the current boundaries, running it as a training venture for the community, utilising the current raised garden beds and turning them into wicking beds.

The Kitchen Garden will be used to educate the Community about how to build and grow, and use edible produce using sustainable methods. It is anticipated the Community house will use the produce grown to teach Basic Cookery, as well as for Community Lunches, Xmas Dinner and possibly marketing through the Op-Shop.

If you would like to find out more or volunteer and help with the Gawler Community House’s Kitchen Garden, contact Colleen Moyne at the Gawler Community House on (08) 8522 4601 or email gawlerch@bigpond.com or via their Facebook page
