West Brunswick Community Garden has a future and we're excited to be helping

An update for you on what's happening with the West Brunswick Community Garden.

Council had a good response to their invitation for expressions of interest which is really heartening and supports their decision to find a solution that will keep this garden going. It also reinforces our sense of a building interest in gardening in the community.

Last Wednesday night's Moreland City Council meeting saw a report on the submissions from various groups interested in managing the garden.

The big news for our group is that we've been asked to manage the West Brunswick Community Garden! Council felt that our proposal best addressed the criteria they set down and so they recommended we be given a 12 month lease on the garden with options to extend from there.
