Community Garden-VegeTrugs

Kent Town Residents Association successfully applied for a Community Grant from Norwood Payneham St Peters Council late last year, to purchase raised garden beds to extend our Community Garden project.

“VegeTrugs” and soil to fill them were purchased from Bunnings. David Shores led the building project. The committee agreed that we needed to extend the Community Gardens concept to the northern end of Kent Town. We used the shared open spaces in apartment complexes to enhance community connection among residents as well as providing fresh vegetables and herbs to share. At present, two VegeTrugs have been placed at The Brewery Apartments and the others have been offered to La Verde and East Park.
