"As we look towards the next 12 months, there is a lot to do on the horizon.
The Committee’s priorities are to finish the drainage swale that will accompany the native plants. We will also continue to implement projects which have recently received grant funding: a nursery and potting table and watering system. Following this, we will look towards planning and fundraising for the last few garden beds to fill the space between the middle of the garden and the shed.
We will also continue to work closely with the Brisbane City Council, including the local Walter Taylor Ward Office to find a new solution for our compost hub which has been closed since the floods. We will also work with the local Ward Office to continue to find opportunities for the garden to expand.
We will continue to find new ways to be sustainable and problem-solve common sustainability challenges, such as our recent installation of a Containers for Change bin.
In the next year, we also hope to host our second workshop and more informal events like our birthday party potluck.
Most of all, I look forward to enjoying each other's company in the garden, charting new territory in terms of growing plants we haven’t tried, brainstorming new ideas and sharing in the ups and downs of our everyday lives.
The garden has come so far since its inception in 2019, and we’ve done a great job together."
