Grow­ing sup­port for lo­cal gar­den

Comment News (Gosnells) - - News -

KELM­SCOTT is get­ting a brand new com­mu­nity gar­den.

The City of Ar­madale ap­proved the pro­posal from Kelm­scott Com­mu­nity Gar­den Inc at a meet­ing ear­lier this month.

The gar­den will be es­tab­lished at Lot 2333, 55 River Road, and the com­mu­nity is en­cour­aged to get in­volved with the project to hone their veg­etable and herb cul­ti­va­tion skills while mak­ing friends with their neigh­bours.

“In ad­di­tion to gar­den­ing ac­tiv­i­ties, there is scope for work­shops, busy bees and so­cial gath­er­ings at­tract­ing like-minded peo­ple to par­tic­i­pate, and the peo­ple in­volved can supplement their food and re­duce their gro­cery bills,” Ar­madale Mayor Henry Zelones said.

“Gar­dens such as this also pro­vide op­por­tu­ni­ties for chil­dren to lean about en­vi­ron­men­tal and sus­tain­abil­ity mat­ters as they watch the plants grow.”
