Proposed Baulkham Hills Community Garden

A new garden for you in the Garden Shire

 

 

   T

he Rotary Club of The Hills-Kellyville is proposing the establishment of a Community Garden at Conie Avenue Reserve Baulkham Hills.

Community gardens have been shown to contribute to a better and healthier lifestyle by:

  • providing fresh, safe, affordable herbs, fruits and vegetables

  • helping to relieve stress and to increase a sense of wellness

  • getting people active to help improve their overall physical health

  • providing social opportunities that build a sense of community and belonging

  • giving people an opportunity to learn and share knowledge on gardening, nature, and cooking

  • providing an inclusive meeting area where interested people of all ages and cultural backgrounds can come together to share experiences

 A grant under the Federal Stronger Communities Programme is available to establish the Community Garden and we have the support of The Hills Shire Council. 

We need to hear from the community about what you want and how to best make it happen.

To move this initiative forward, The Rotary Club of The Hills-Kellyville will hold a public interest meeting seeking community support for the project.

The meeting will be on 26th February at 7.30pm at North West Disability Services, off Conie Ave Baulkham Hills. No RSVP is required.  Mr Graeme Ross from Channel 7’s Better Homes and Gardens has indicated he will be there, as will the Hills Shire Mayor, Dr Michelle Byrne as well as other speakers.

If you are interested in the Community Garden project, please attend.

A light supper will be provided at the end of the meeting.
