On Tuesday evening we were very pleased to attend a meeting of the Nulsen Community Progress Association. We were especially interested in hearing from the Esperance Community Garden Sub Committee, as the community garden here could be doing a lot of amazing things that no-one else in town is, and of course it already does, but on rather a small scale due to very limited capacity / resources and complicated issues with tenure of the land they’ve been using for the last 22 years.
One of the Garden’s aims is ‘to promote the use of indigenous plant species from the South East region’, so we’ll be working with some of its members to locate various local edibles for use in our project.
The meeting itself moved along at a fair clip, with discussion of the upcoming Senior’s Expo (where we’ll have a small presence also!) and a brainstormed SWOT analysis of the Garden (including its work with the dept. of justice and the primary school across the road) which will be used to prepare material for super urgent fundraising. Lots of food for thought – and some spectacular spinach to take home and turn into dinner.
