Vegies for All launched in Moruya

Yesterday, together with the IMB Bank, SAGE launched their 2018 Veggies for All program at St John's, Moruya.

Coordinated by SAGE member Kathryn Maxwell, thanks to an IMB Community Foundation grant in 2017, they installed over 50 free raised garden beds in the backyards of low income earners. Additionally, over 140 people were introduced to the basics of growing vegetables at the Veggies for All workshops.

The IMB Community Foundation were so impressed with the positive impact on our community, they are supporting SAGE again in 2018 with an even bigger grant, so SAGE can install another 70 garden beds and help many more people learn how to grow at least some of their own food.

SAGE market gardener internship alumnus Kyle Levier will be giving advice and instruction at the workshops, so participants will learn from one of the best in our region. Cost is just $15!

Registrations for any of the 10 planned workshops are open now. He will lead the three-hour hour workshops on: Saturday, July 14 - Moruya SAGE Garden 11am - 2pm Saturday, July 21 - Narooma Men's Shed 1pm - 4pm Sunday, July 22 - Community Gardens behind Kyla Hall and it is 11am – 2 pm They will be held in a number of locations all over the shire, starting from mid-July. You can register on the SAGE website on the 《GARDEN PARTNERS》 page, or at the SAGE Farmers Market on Tuesday afternoons, or call Kathryn on 0467 558 645.
