Kyabram P-12 College students and staff Lachlan Carling, Shania Manoel (back), Jaxon McLeod, Greg Dunn, Melanie Shaw, Mihaela Ranga (teacher) and Jacinta Brown contributed to the murals to be displayed at the new Kyabram Community Garden.
The new Kyabram Community Garden will be opened in March.
The garden has been created on the site of the former Kyabram Traffic School at WJ Wood Reserve in Lake Rd, with the Kyabram Community Garden Reference Group developing the project.
Group member Nicole Fraser said the group was inviting applications from anyone interested in taking up a community garden plot.
Ms Fraser would also like to hear from people interested in setting up displays, produce, craft, entertainment or activities for the official opening and open day.
‘‘The aim is to set up a market on the day at the back of Kyabram Community and Learning Centre, alongside the community garden and provide free activities, information and entertainment, which will include music to be performed by local students,’’ she said.
‘‘We already have 25 organisations and businesses interested in taking part on the day, but we’d love to see as many as possible taking up the opportunity to make it a great community event.’’
The community garden will also feature mural artwork created by Kyabram P-12 College 2013 Year 10 art students.
Kyabram Community Garden’s opening and open day will be on Sunday, March 2 from 11
For more information about Kyabram Community Garden, or to express your interest in being involved on the open day, the next group meeting is tomorrow at KCLC at 5.30
