Mile­stones

Joondalup Times - - NEWS -

THE Dun­craig Ed­i­ble Gar­den is grow­ing strong four years af­ter its of­fi­cial open­ing. The once-bare con­crete cir­cle in the fore­court of Dun­craig Pub­lic Li­brary is now full of many dif­fer­ent ed­i­ble plants. There are fruit trees on the slope north of the cir­cle and a verge gar­den to the south as well as wick­ing beds. Af­ter a two-year pi­lot phase, the first com­mu­nity gar­den on pub­lic space in the City of Joon­dalup now oper­ates as an in­de­pen­dent in­cor­po­rated or­gan­i­sa­tion.

It hosts work­shops on pop­u­lar gar­den­ing and sus­tain­abil­ity, and on Novem­ber 24 Un­cle Tom Lit­tle will talk about Land­care and spir­i­tu­al­ity. On De­cem­ber 8, there will be a com­mu­nity cel­e­bra­tion open to the pub­lic from 9.30am. Visit dun­craiged­i­ble­gar­den.org.au. Have a mile­stone? Tell us at: wt@com­mu­ni­tynews.com.au
