Garden growing with the community

The Warrane Mornington Community Garden is seeking feedback from the local community on its plans to construct a sustainable garden hub structure at its Heemskirk Street site.

Garden coordinator Katie Kristensen said the hub would be an accessible, multipurpose space for the community to gather, learn and grow even in the case of inclement weather.

“The new hub will allow us to plan and host nature-based programs with confidence that the weather won’t impact our delivery or attendance,” she said.

“It will also build on the capacity of the Warrane Mornington Neighbourhood Centre and provide a hireable space for local community groups and organisations.

“The space will be a demonstration of sustainable building practices and materials in the heart of Clarence.

“Development is still in the early stages and we are keen to receive more feedback from the broader community about the design or a potential name.”

Prior to the 2024 state election both the Labor and Liberal parties promised to provide top-up funds for the project if elected.

The garden team will seek additional funding through a Tasmanian grant program later this year.

The latest plans of the garden hub can be accessed at the Warrane Mornington Neighbourhood Centre at 150A Bligh Street.

Anyone wishing to provide feedback about the project can email the Warrane Mornington Community Garden team at garden@wmnc.org.au or call 6244 6346.
