Robninson Reserve Community Garden is underway!

There is exciting progress to share regarding the upcoming Robinson Reserve Community Garden!

Council has prepared the site and the construction of core infrastructure (i.e. 6 raised garden beds) has begun. This first stage will be carried out every Friday over the next few weeks. The current, staged garden design is included below.

Once this construction stage is complete, the garden will be handed over to the community for planting and nurturing.

You are all invited to attend a meeting to discuss and get involved in the next stage of the garden on Thursday, 15 March, at 7:30pm at the House.

This meeting will be to discuss the roll-out of stage 2 and beyond. RRNH will be available for support and coordination, however a community-led committee will need to be established to ensure the running of the garden.

We would appreciate you forwarding this to anyone in the area who you think may be interested. If you are interested in being involved please email admin@rrnh.org.au.
