THE Brighton Community Garden Education and Resource Centre has received funding to upgrade security fencing.

The garden received a $10,000 grant from the Department of Communities for fencing that will help protect the community garden from vandalism.

Mr Terry said many gardeners and volunteers worked tirelessly to make the garden a valuable asset for the wider community.
