St Augstine’s students show off their sculptures to be displayed at the KCLC community gardens.June 11, 2014 3:20am
KCLC community gardens just got a bit more colourful with the edition of painted sculptures St Augustine’s College students created.
St Augustine’s primary students hand made the wood cut-outs as an art project after the Shire of Campaspe provided funding.
The Shire of Campaspe gave $1000 towards the project to help get younger children involved in the community garden.
Councillor Rocchina D’Angelo said the sculptures were a terrific addition to the garden and that children should continue to be involved in the garden’s growth.
‘‘This garden is important because when people have nothing to do in their own home or backyard they can come here and do something for the community,’’ she said.
‘‘It also teaches kids from a younger age how to grow things, because kids today have no idea and this garden gets the message across and gets them involved.’’
KCLC marketing co-ordinator Nicole Fraser said the gardens gates were not locked and that the community could get involved whenever they liked.
‘‘The garden helps engage with what the community needs and supports the future development of the town,’’ she said.
‘‘Whether that’s as an attraction or a health and wellbeing activity, so we really want people to get involved as much as possible.’’
The next community garden reference group meeting will be on June 26 at 2
