Garden Redevelopment Project
What’s happening with the outdoor space at the TNC?
After years of living with a gravel and weed filled, difficult to use space we have embarked on a redevelopment project to turn our outdoor area into a welcoming, attractive and useable space for our whole community to enjoy.
Initial drawings and concept were produced for us by Josh Smith and further developed by Anthony Morrey. The plan involves removal of the large existing outbuilding, replacement of the fences and new surfaces for the upper and lower levels of the space. The existing terraced beds are to stay and a smaller shed for storage installed The upper area will be enhanced by a pergola with inbuilt seating and plantings for natural shade and two new wicking beds filled with edible plants.
As you can see if you walk past, work has started and the space already looks vastly improved. We have been able to secure some funding from the State and Federal Governments and the Hepburn Shire to partly cover the cost of the project but more funds are needed!
