Hi guys, I hope that everyone is enjoying their Autumn harvests as we move into winter. Veronica and I have been enjoying lots of Ugni (Chilean Guava) and a great variety of Apple known as Limonero which is yellow and slightly acidic like a Lemon.
If you haven’t heard, there is very exciting news from Canberra which is that the community group who got together with myself and Cam Wilson in February 2014 to look at designing a community Food Forest have had their design approved and it is pending full approval from the ACT government. If you have a chance, have a look at the plans and design and let the ACT government know you think that community Forest Gardens are a great project and weigh in with any ideas you’ve got about it. I’ll be telling the story of this community design over the coming months so stay tuned. Happy Gardening.
After 18 months of hard work, not just by our group but by Minister Rattenbury, his office and his department, all that stands between us and the implementation of our dream is a positive outcome on the consultation currently open. You can help make this happen.
Here is all the informatin that you need.
In 2014 a group of Lyneham residents approached Territory and Municipal Services (TAMS) with a request to transform a small piece of low use public land in their suburb into a food forest for the benefit of the surrounding community. TAMS investigated the request and found the site suitable for a food forest pending wider public support for the proposal.
The proposed food forest site is located in Lyneham on unleased Territory land behind the Lyneham Primary School adjacent to Sullivans Creek storm water drain, a short walk from the Lyneham shops.
