Building a fire wise, sustainable, organic, community garden.
Quarry Hill is a suburban area with a diverse range of people. It has a high number of young families along with an ageing community. It has been identified that a community garden would assist in supporting the community on multiple levels.
To achieve these goals, we need to develop and build the infrastructure needed for the project. The site of the proposed Community Garden has the ability to draw from all areas of the community and assist in building connections between multiple groups as it sits within a hub of schools and community facilities.
A Community Garden would connect and support the diversity of the community and build relationships by offering an opportunity to spend time with others in the community and sharing skills. We have several groups that have shown strong support for this project and wish to support the development of connections within the community through gardening.
