Shire of Goomalling

Community Garden Update

Posted on: Friday, 16 June 2017 at 10:30:50 AM

The Goomalling community garden is a Shire of Goomalling initiative, and has been made possible by the successful grant application.

The garden is situated to the left of the Goomalling Town Hall on the block to the left of the Shire Depot. The garden will be fenced to define the area (and hopefully keep out the rabbits) and the area will be open to the community at all times. The area was chosen for its accessibility to the youth and child care centres, and the rear access to the shires old shade house which will now be part of the community garden.

 As well as vegetable garden beds the area will include indigenous food plants, nature play area, rainwater tanks and seating. The plan for the area will be discussed as part of the training course.

An important part of the grant funding is the training component. This training, provided by Greg Knibbs, will provide us with the knowledge and skills required to build the garden and ensure its long term success.
