New garden set to grow a stronger community

THE new Halcro Street Community Gardens in Point Vernon will be opened today with a ceremony from 9am to noon.

The garden will be a place where people can grow fruit, vegetables and herbs, as well as a meeting place to relax and unwind.

Fraser Coast Regional Council Healthy Communities co-ordinator Maureen Murphy said it would also feature a sensory garden.

If you would like to get involved in the community garden contact Ms Murphy on 1300 794 929.
