Community garden in need of love

March 29, 2017

A garden looking for some love: Cobram Community House board members Gayle Berg von Lindhe, Jenny Tom, Alex Monk and Kerry Murray are looking to see the Cobram Community Garden blossom again.

A patch of land in Cobram is going unloved at the moment and people at Cobram Community House want to change that.

The Cobram Community Garden, which is located between Killara House and the Old School building on Punt Rd, has gone almost unused by the community, something the people at Cobram Community House would like changed.

Cobram Community House manager Sally Bate said apart from the Cobram and District Specialist School having a vegie patch, the site tended to be left alone.

‘‘We really feel that the garden is under-used by the community,’’ Ms Bate said.

‘‘It might be because it happens to be tucked away that there is a bit of out of sight, out of mind mentality — but we are hoping to change that.’’

Community house board member Alex Monk said while there was a little bit of work to be done around the garden, a lot of the infrastructure was already in place.

‘‘One thing people should know is that no equipment would be required to bring with you,’’ Mrs Monk said.

‘‘We have a shed full of tools that are available for people to use on their patch in the garden.

‘‘You hear all the time that people are looking to grow their own fresh fruits and vegetables but might not have the space.

‘‘Here, people will be able to have their own vegie patch and grow whatever they like.’’

Cobram Community House will take general expressions of interest regarding an open day for the Community Garden.
