Come and grow veggies at the new Moruya Community Garden

SAGE, with funding from the IMB Bank Community Foundation, has established a Moruya Community Garden with 14 wicking beds at the Anglican Parish in Page Street Moruya.

Kathryn Maxwell, SAGE Veggies for All Coordinator, said “wicking veggie beds are available to community groups and households with an annual payment of only $30 to cover water costs. A wicking bed is a garden bed with a waterproof lining that holds a reservoir of water at the bottom from which water is drawn upwards like a wick to the surface of the bed via natural soil osmosis or through the roots of plants in the bed. Basically it works like large self-watering pot”.

So far 8 of the 14 wicking beds have been leased by six community organisations and two individuals:

◦ Meals on Wheels Out and About

◦ The Disability Trust

◦ Hammond Care at Home

◦ Parent Care

◦ Tenant Participation and Community Engagement – Mission Australia

◦ the Anglican Parish and

◦ Susan Hume

◦ Melissa Selleck “Those who lease a veggie bed will be provided with seedling vouchers, sugarcane mulch and access to a range of garden tools from SAGE” said Kathryn Maxwell.

If you would like to lease a veggie bed you can either email Kathryn at or ring her on 0467 558 645.
