Exciting Funding News!

Council Partnership Grant Approval
I'm very excited and pleased to share the news that City of Moreland Council have awarded us a partnership grant of $25,000 towards our garden project which I'm sure you'll agree is fantastic news.

Ours was one of a handful of projects to receive partnership grants and one of several involving urban agriculture or growing food which says something great not only about the rise of urban ag in Moreland but also about Moreland Council's growing receptiveness towards these kinds of activities.

Council held a very civil presentation ceremony at the Town Hall and although we don't have a photo of us with BIG cheque, we have a nice certificate and a remittance note to show for it and the first instalment is waiting for us in the bank along with our sausage sizzle proceeds.

Now for the fun part, making a garden and growing some food!

Update: Here's a pic of us receiving the grant from the Mayor (what a nice man he is too!).
