WAITATI EDIBLE GARDENS column

by Lynnaire Johnston

Another WEGies initiative is the possible development of a community
garden on Bland Park. While still being negotiated with a number of
parties, it is envisaged this would be based on the English allotment
system.

Under this system, allotment holders are allocated a piece of land
that is theirs to develop into a garden for growing the crops of their
choice.

The next step in developing this project will be a needs analysis to
determine whether there is sufficient interest in the community.
However, a number of local residents have already indicated they would
like an allotment plot. If you wish to be involved with this project,
would like an allotment, or simply wish to know more, please contact
Lynnaire Johnston, 482 1364 or lynnaire@wordwizard.co.nz.
