Com­mu­nity gar­den a step closer in Port

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

THE land and seed fund­ing have been ap­proved and plans are well ad­vanced to re­cruit a team of ea­ger green-fin­gered vol­un­teers who as­pire to be ex­pe­ri­enced in agri­cul­tural cul­ti­va­tion and wheel­bar­row-push­ing.

The Port Dou­glas Neigh­bour­hood Cen­tre’s com­mu­nity gar­den will take shape across the road from the Neigh­bour­hood Cen­tre in Mow­bray St.

A range of ve­g­ies will be grown as well as trop­i­cal flow­ers that will be sold to the pub­lic to pro­vide a much-needed rev­enue stream which has slowed to a trickle.

PDNC co-or­di­na­tor Mandy Stone is hope­ful the com­mu­nity gar­den will even­tu­ally be­come “a bit of an earner” like the much-loved Nic Nak shed.

Vol­un­teers are needed - but you have to bring your own spade.
