COMMUNITY GARDEN CONTINUES TO GROW

A State Government grant will help deliver welcome improvements to the popular South Coffs Community Garden, said Member for Coffs Harbour Gurmesh Singh.

He said the garden is the beneficiary of $15,515 under the government’s 2020 Community Building Partnership Program, which is helping grassroots projects make a real difference in our community.

“South Coffs Community Garden members are to be congratulated for their successful application – their project is all about enhancing their ability to promote community participation while reducing environmental impact.

“They will be able to dramatically increase their composting production with the purchase of new equipment for their tractor and extra composting bins.

“Ever since the first raised beds were established in 2017, South Coffs Community Garden has been an important meeting place for like-minded local residents.

“The garden boasts some 35 members who are always on the lookout for more to join their ranks. They are to be applauded for bringing members of our community together in the way they do.”

The NSW Government’s Community Building Partnership program has funded more than 15,000 community projects since it commenced in 2009.
