I am involved with a project in Newlands to develop community gardens in the area. I am currently working on a proposal to be submitted to WCC for two sites in Newlands.
I am looking for keen people who would like to be part of the community garden, I would love to hear from people who are keen to be part of the planning process or to write letters of support for the proposal or who would like come along and garden once the community gardens are set up.
I have attached two documents with further information about the community gardens and if you would like further information or to be on my email update list then send me a email.
I have now set up a Facebook page for this project called "Northern Community Gardens" and I sent the proposal to WCC a few weeks ago. I will update the FB page when I have some news.

Thanks to everyone that wrote letters of support. WCC have the proposal and hopefully it will be approved within the next month.
We now have an email address set up for the garden email@example.com adn looking forward to growing seedlings for the garden!
Well looks like have to wait until mid October for the proposal to go to WCC committee meeting and hopefully be approved. but so far everything is sounding positive.
If you are keen to be involved then sent me an email firstname.lastname@example.org
Also there is another community garden starting up in Johnsonville. check out their facebook page if you want to know more.
We have had some positive news from WCC and have the go ahead for the site. First working bee is planned for 10th December. if you are keen to be involved then send me and email email@example.com or like us on facebook http://www.facebook.com/pages/Northern-Community-Gardens/2043068829...
