Work For The Dole reinvigorates Community Garden

Constant attention by Work For The Dole teams has led to a resurgence of interest in what happens at Wellington's Community Garden in the Scout Hall grounds.

A re-fencing project is due to start, and individual plots for community gardeners will follow. The Native Animal Totem beds are being stocked with bush-tucker plants and there are funding applications out for an extra water tank and a COLA to shelter young & old while activities are taking place and to offer a space for the meditation sessions offered by our Buddhist community.  There are also plans for a mini-golf course on the site, for those who need a break from gardening.

We have an MOU with the Scouting Association for us to be able to work together to develop the area as a community hub of activity.  It is proposed for summer access hours to be 7am to 7pm, and winter access hours to be 8am to 5pm (governed by when the clocks change).  As soon as the new fencing is erected, we will be offering monthly workshops, including moon-gardening, bee-keeping, food preserving and bush-tucker identification, to name but a few.  The possibilities are endless, and soon, we will be calling for individuals to populate the garden with personal or group blocks, whatever makes your day, and joining in wherever you like.
