Residents, businesses pull together for garden

IF YOU have green fingers and some spare time you can join a great group of people who run the Cabarita Community Garden.

The garden, situated at Bogangar Public School, had a huge makeover this week with more than 15 volunteers working all day to implement the garden design created by Dan Plummer.

Local landscaper Christian Ellis led the day.

With donations from residents and materials trickling in, the garden is coming together.

"The local Chemist donated some corrugated iron which magically turned into four above ground garden beds," said treasurer, Faye Nash.

"A neighbour carried down an old tin garden bed.

"Baths were saved from the old youth centre and are now happily in-ground ready to be planted.

"Weeding and pruning shaped the edges of the garden which is now waiting for some donations of fruit trees.

"Bogangar Public School has been very supportive.

"They donated the grounds, storage shed, tank and provided a new gate."

Cabarita Sports Club sponsored some future works and hosted a BBQ lunch for the workers.

"Chook or goat poo is most desirable, so if anyone has some or old tools the group would be happy to pick them up," Ms Nash said.

Anyone can join the group for $25 and get a garden plot to plant out or just become a member of the garden for $10.

This entitles the member to some of the produce.

Contact Faye Nash (Treasurer) to join or donate materials. (0407831370) or look at the web site facebook/cabaritacommunity garden.
