The Brighton Community Garden has become a place for people to socialise, meet others who love gardening and enjoy the company of different generations, according to chairman Bernard Terry.

‘It is a healthy way to feed a family on organic produce,’ Mr Terry said.

‘Produce is shared among the members from the numerous fruit and nut trees in season.

‘Regular working days are held to assist with the upkeep on the garden and also provide an opportunity to socialise with a barbecue when the work is done.’

On April 14, the garden will host a combined Wanneroo and Butler walking group for tea after its walk.

The garden committee is also planning to hold a Biggest Morning Tea fundraiser for the Cancer Council on May 22 and open for the East Butler Primary School fete in October.
