On Sunday 30th of September at 10.30am the Noble Park Community Garden will be opened by Mayor, Councillor Youhorn Chea, from the Greater Dandenong Council. Urban Reforestation has really enjoyed working with this strong and passionate community. So much so, Emily our director has written a poem about the amazing people who have been involved in the garden and made things happen on the ground.
The new Noble Park Community Garden is an initiative of Noble Park Community Centre and is strongly supported by local council and local businesses. Together with key stakeholders, Noble Park Community Centre and Urban Reforestation are seeking to define a vision for the site that will deliver an exemplar community garden for the benefit of local residents and the Noble Park Community Centre visitors. Key to the success of this project is the engagement of the local community in the design and delivery of the space, to build support and energy for the project and as a tool to assist in community building.
