Mayor Cr Brett Cunningham is thrilled the program is returning for its biggest series yet.
I am delighted to see the return of the Edible Gardens webinars following great success both in 2021 and 2022. The webinars are perfect for beginners and experienced green thumbs who are looking to grow their skills in the garden.
The program aligns with priorities outlined in Council’s Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plan focusing on increasing healthy eating, improving mental health and tackling climate change and its impact on health.
