Voltaire said we must cultivate our garden; Canberrans can follow that advice thanks to a $10,000 grant from the ACT Government to set up community gardens.
A total of $40,000 is available in this year’s round of the Community Garden Grants, Rebecca Vassarotti, Minister for Environment, announced on Monday. She launched the 2021 round in a garden set up by a previous recipient, the Good Shepherd Community Church Tuggeranong, Lyneham.
“These are grants that continue to give back to the community,” Ms Vassarotti said. “The grants program provides support for the development, enhancement, and the expansion of community gardens across Canberra to promote the health, wellbeing and sense of belonging of the local community.”
