The Yamba Community Garden


 The Yamba Community Garden is a brilliant new development that is based on the European idea of the allotment garden but also focuses on being a community facility where members can help out and then pick from the common areas. It was established in Wattle Park through a $50,000 grant from Northern Rivers Food Links and $10,000 from the Clarence Valley Council. At 6 months old it is an amazing development that represents what a community can do if they put their mind and effort into.

  3. Love the community garden concept - and the central plot looks wonderful! Hope the 'pickers' don't outnumber the 'planters'!!!
