Community Garden to be Established in Narromine

Narromine Shire Council today signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) that allows for the development of a community garden adjacent to the Narromine Historical Museum.

The MOU sets out the terms and understanding between Narromine Shire Council, Macquarie Valley Landcare Group Incorporated and Ngarru Mayin Elders Aboriginal Corporation, to establish and operate a community garden on Council owned land.

Narromine Shire Council’s General Manager, Jane Redden said “the proposed community garden will included a bark hut and traditional Australian flora celebrating our Aboriginal heritage and culture within the Shire” she said.

The development of the community garden continues to add to the streetscape and assists in developing a vibrant and diverse community that has a strong sense of belonging and wellbeing.
