Community Gardens

Feb 25, 2022 | Electorate, News, Parliament

I had a constituent reach out to me regarding the lack of community gardens in the City of Knox area. Their view is that rather than investing in large park areas in centralised spaces, smaller community gardens and parks spread throughout the suburban streets would be a more effective way of enhancing our community atmosphere. Neighbours would be more likely to interact with those who live nearby, and the community gardens would encourage socialisation and would overall have a positive impact on mental health. The information I seek for my constituent is: has the government considered introducing more local community gardens in the City of Knox?
