The Moama Community Garden is officially open and ready for planting.
Two open days have been held at the garden, behind the Moama Senior Citizens building in Martin St.
Residents were given the option to buy an exclusive garden plot and fees include water rates.
The shared garden facility is a place where people of all ages and levels of experience and abilities can come together to experience the reward of gardening and have access to affordable fruit and vegetables.
Project manager Katrina Gibson was happy with the response to the open days.
‘‘We had two days (Saturday and Tuesday) where people could come and have a look at the gardens and we’ve already sold more than half of the beds,’’ she said.
‘‘Some people started planting straight away.
‘‘We also noticed there were people who bought beds despite having large backyards where they could grow a garden if they wanted, but wanted to be part of the social side of things.
‘‘That’s what it’s really about — making it a community inclusion project
The Moama Community Garden is a joint partnership between Murray and Campaspe shires, Campaspe Primary Care Partnership and partner agencies.
