Gardening Australia host Costa Georgiadis is coming to town.
Popularly known as ‘‘Costa’’, he will be the star turn at the Seymour Community Garden open day on November 16 from 10
There will be teaching and demonstrations related to produce and community gardens, with the regular community ‘‘Meet and Greet’’ providing a healthy lunch for a gold coin donation at noon.
There will also be a showcasing of The Salvation Army Pathways’ other community service programs.
Following short speeches from dignitaries and a sponsor, Costa will give a talk and cut the ribbon.
Interesting community garden and program tours will be conducted, and after lunch Costa will talk about growing your own food in a community.
He and others will then conduct demonstrations and teaching sessions in the community garden.
The garden is at 10 Victoria St (behind the Salvation Army hall), where people can lease plots to grow their own food in a friendly and inviting community.
Initial funding for the project was through DHS, with Pathways taking the project to completion.
Now the garden’s development is moved along by a committee of management made up mostly of plot holders.
