Veggies for All program welcomes funding


Eurobodalla will see more back-yard vegetable gardeners, veggie beds and a new

community garden in Moruya following the welcome announcement that the SAGE 2019

Veggies for All program received a grant of $20,000.


Sustainable Agriculture and Gardening Eurobodalla (SAGE) received the grant from the

IMB Bank Community Foundation, enabling the successful program to continue for

another year. The official launch will be held on Friday in Moruya.

The SAGE Veggies for All program is supported by an amazing team of volunteers led by

SAGE’s program’s coordinator Kathryn Maxwell who said they are all excited about the

$20,000 grant.

“We are thrilled and very grateful that the IMB Bank Community Foundation has

announced it will generously fund our program for another year,” said Ms Maxwell.

“In the past few years we have been able to install around 150 raised veggie beds in the

homes of Centrelink recipients and we have welcomed more than 300 people through our

vegetable gardening workshops.”

“This $20,000 grant will help us run veggie gardening workshops for any Eurobodalla

resident for only $15, and install veggie beds in the backyards of 40 Centrelink recipients.”

“We are also working towards establishing a new community garden in the grounds of the

Anglican Parish in Moruya.”

SAGE and IMB Bank are launching the Veggies for All 2019 program next Friday 26 July

2019. The launch will be held at 11am at the Vulcan St Cafe, 57 Vulcan St Moruya.

Refreshments and sandwiches will be provided and everyone is invited to attend the

celebration.
