|The Elders who came and enjoyed the day|
It was also wonderful through modern technology to have Angela as a part of the day
We also had a visit from out little friends from around the corner
The animals from Symbio was also a big hit with kids and adults.
For me, it was a great day that made me feel proud to be a part of the garden and my hope is that the garden will became an outdoor classroom for all. Here are some words from other garden members about the day.
It was really fantastic and the people who I talked to really enjoyed it and were really pleased to see good use of this open space.- Martie
Symbio was good and so was the sport and rec girls. I was surprised so many people turned up. - Cliff Lovelace.
I was so pleased to see the smiles on the faces of the elders; the best justification for the idea of the project. I hope they will become involved in the future - Cliff Ball
The bush tucker launch was a very emotional experience for me. It highlighted the potential for the bush tucker garden space to be a place of gathering and reconciliation. So much positive energy flowed throughout the day that it surely must be the beginning of a new and fruitful journey for the local community - Angela Dever
As a volunteer community gardener and supervisor of Access Community Group Work and Development Orders program I am very proud to be a part of this wonderful journey at Barrack Heights Community Garden.
It allows me to explore and learn everyday with and from other gardeners and community members within the "Fair Share" ethos of permaculture.
It is pleasing to obtain the valuable assistance of volunteers and also assist them to reduce State Debt Recovery Office debt and witness them being able to open new doors in their lives - Darren Bell
The garden was built around friendship, enthusiasm as well as sharing knowledge. A massive team effort by everyone involved.
