Community Gardens To Become Reality

After four years and 49 monthly meetings, members of the Lennox Community Gardens Committee are celebrating. 

Last month the team from Lennox Community Gardens entered into an agreement with Ballina Shire Council to plant a garden within an area of Ocean Breeze Reserve. 

According to Jimi Gatland, President of the group, ‘We couldn’t have done it without the help of the public and people interested in the project. It was the constant encouragement and enthusiasm of the Lennox community that kept us going through challenging times. So, it is with great sincerity that we say, ‘thank you.’

‘But this great feat would also not have been possible without our committed members and management committee, past and present. A very special thanks to you all,’ he said.

To celebrate this milestone the committee is offering the public an opportunity to walk the site and ask questions. They will be holding a public picnic at Ocean Breeze Reserve from midday on Sunday 14 April. 

There will be cricket and petanque, but people are invited to bring any other games, a plate to share and the usual picnic ensemble – especially sunscreen and mosquito repellent!
