Community garden in full bloom

By David Rak

Avenel Primary School has collaborated with the Avenel Action Group to set up a community garden on the school grounds.

The purpose of the garden is to develop a shared love of gardening and to give the different generations within the community the opportunity to work together.

Students, parents and community members have set up 12 garden beds, which have been planted out in recent weeks.

Already the garden has been a huge success and students have been highly engaged in planting, mulching and caring for the new space.
