Heavens are set to open for community garden

YANCHEP residents now have a 3000 litre rainwater tank to keep the community garden behind Yanchep Central Shopping Centre thriving.

It was included in the latest round of grants distributed by Jindowie Estate with the Housing Department and project manager Australand.

Garden co-ordinator Gail Harris welcomed the water tank and its much-needed contribution towards the growth and success of the free community facility.

“Without this water tank, the garden would not have survived the hot, dry summer,” Ms Harris said.

Australand Development director Justin Crooks said Jindowie Estate was committed to supporting the local community as it continued to establish itself as a great place to live.

“We are very pleased to support the fantastic efforts of the volunteers working in the community garden, which provides a wonderful meeting place for neighbours and friends,” he said.

Other organisations to benefit from the grants program included Yanchep Surf Lifesaving Club, Yanchep United Football Club, Playmates Group, North Coastal Women’s Shed and the Jindowie Residents’ Association.

Applications for the next round of grants open soon, with more information available at jindowie. com.au.
