Rotary Donate Equipment to Community Garden
The Rotary Club of Burnside has been awarded a $12,000 grant to purchase equipment for the Laurel Avenue community garden.
The Stronger Communities Programme Round 6 grant was awarded by the Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources.
Rotary Club of Burnside Secretary John Caddy said the idea for the Grant application came about when at the old nursery site. “When I heard the nursery was relocating and Laurel Avenue was potentially to become a community garden I said ‘How can we help?’”
The grant will pay for a picnic setting, three benches and a cubby house, all to be constructed from recycled materials.
John said the community garden is “a fantastic idea” and he looks forward to the equipment being installed in July or August.
