Com­mu­nity gar­den in full bloom

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

KALE, let­tuce, sil­ver­beet, co­rian­der and pars­ley – River­vale’s com­mu­nity gar­den is flour­ish­ing.

The com­mu­nity gar­den­ers are on to their sec­ond har­vest at the gar­den in Wil­son Park, keep­ing a keen eye out for their broad beans to come through.

Bel­mont Com­mu­nity Grow­ers pres­i­dent San­dra May­nard said since its es­tab­lish­ment ear­lier this year, the gar­den and its sup­port­ers had been go­ing from strength to strength.

“The dog walk­ers who use the park have ex­pressed their plea­sure in see­ing the gar­den de­velop,” Ms May­nard said.

All are wel­come to come and find out more about the lo­cal project and how to get in­volved.

“Our monthly gath­er­ings are on the first Sun­day of each month and it’s won­der­ful to have com­mu­nity mem­bers turn up and join in our chats and, once they join, our har­vests,” Ms May­nard said.

In­for­ma­tion on how to join the com­mu­nity gar­den­ers can be found on the beds or by vis­it­ing com­mu­ni­ty­grow­ers.org.
