Combine St community garden plan

IF Coffs Harbour City Council approves the suggested Combine Street site for a community garden for Coffs Harbour tonight, the project is likely to involve Landcare and Rivercare members as well as city gardeners and other community groups.

Adam Curlis, the president of the Coffs Harbour Regional Community Garden Association, said the proposed site had an open drain through it, which they would like to see improved and it would take a while to get the garden up and running.

In the long term they would like to see a mandala-style garden showing how to grow different vegetables in different seasons and possibly small individual plots.

The land connects to the park in King Street behind the tennis courts and Mr Curlis said in time he hoped a community garden would also be a focus of low-key social events.

Consultation with neighbouring home owners will be the first task for the association if the proposal is approved.
