Councillor Don Palmer Providing Local Leadership & Working for You

Clarence Park Community Kindergarten applied for a grant to grow their vegetable and herb garden into a community garden in the recent round for community grants.

Their application was approved at our City Strategy & Policy Committee meeting, accepting the recommendation of the Community Grants committee. It does need to be rubber stamped next Monday night but there is no reason to believe it won’t be as approval by the City Strategy & Policy Committee is usually a forerunner for approval at the next full Council meeting.

It is expected to plant in this area.

The aim of the garden is to upgrade their vegetable and herb garden so they can cook their produce and encourage families and the local community to engage with their services.

Well done Clarence Park Kindergarten. In a world where food sustainability is under threat this is a great move. Let’s hope we all get behind them and make it a success.
