Featherston Community Garden Group

The Featherston Community Garden group is a group of volunteer 'Gardeners' who have come together to grow, build and educate a community in producing their own food. The Featherston Community Centre is very excited to have this group at the Centre, and we can't wait to see the results!

At the moment the Featherston Community Garden group mets regularly on an informally basis for weeding, digging and cleaning up the Community Centre grounds. If you want to be included in the next clean up, please email Elsa at kellyelsam@gmail.com so you can be added to our email list. The next 'sit down' meeting is penciled in for the 9th February at the Community Centre at 7.30pm.

Veggie Patch Thriving

Veggie Patch Thriving

Last year, the Centre received the very generous donation of eight kit-set, raised garden beds and a load of topsoil. They were cleaned, assembled and made ready for planting with the help of a few local lads. The community then rallied to provide seeds and seedlings and now the boxes sport a wonderful array of vegetables, herbs and flowers that would make even Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall proud. We have potatoes, silverbeet, beetroot, carrots, Jerusalem artichokes, leeks, tomatoes, parsley, radishes, celery, zucchini and peas interspersed with marigolds and wildflowers. Not only is at a very attractive feature to have as part of the Community Centre grounds, it is also a way we can supply fresh produce to those in the community that need it most.
