Knox City Council Community Garden

Aug 9, 2021 | Advocacy, Electorate, News

Today Rod met with Michelle, Lana and Judy from Knox City Council to discuss their plan to introduce community gardens into 5 public housing estates.  

This idea originated from another program they were organising with these public housing estates which are dedicated to residents over the age of 55. They discovered some emerging issues that needed to be address such as mental health problems, social isolation disconnection from the community. Not only that, but these residents were struggling with basic food and material relief, in particular, fresh produce. That is why the community garden became such an attractive idea.  

Knox council then were successful in receiving the VicHealth grant that meant this idea could become a reality.  

At this stage, the community garden is in its planning process and is focusing on community consultation in order to ensure that the project is focused on co-design and truly meets the needs of residents.  

Rod looks forward to visiting the community gardens and seeing the positive impact they have on the community once completed!
