Edible Pocket Gardens now sprouting in Palmerston

A new initiative for Palmerston, the recently adopted Edible Pocket Garden policy allows residents to plant fruit and vegetables in sections of their local parks and reserves, following a simple approval process. They help to foster a sense of community with the harvest grown in public spaces accessible to the whole community and they create opportunities for those with limited space to be involved in gardening activities. Edible Pocket gardens also encourage residents to get involved in environmental sustainability, as well as increasing the use of green spaces throughout Palmerston. 

The first Edible Pocket Garden has now been planted in Strawbridge Park in Moulden. More information can be found on the City of Palmerston website or call 08 8935 9943.
