We are also in the planning stages of developing a Community Garden at the
Mount Eliza Neighbourhood House. We are working with students from the
Mount Eliza Secondary College, and two students from Monash University.
Our plan is to develop a community garden that will be accessible to all and encourage our local community to grow fruit and vegetables.
We will use some of the produce that we grow, to make Community Lunches that provide a good nourishing meal for those who are socially isolated, aged and living alone, and those who need a helping hand.
If you enjoy gardening or volunteering, we will need your help soon. Let us know if you are interested and we can get your details and keep you informed.
Updates on our Garden, and Boomerang Bags will be done on our Facebook Page, so follow Mount Eliza Neighbourhood House on Facebook.
