Community Development

Share your wonderful garden with us! We know our residents have wonderful gardens and we would love to show yours off in our newsletter. Your garden could be a flower garden, vegetable garden, potted plant garden, common area garden or patio garden. A certificate of recognition will be sent to you, and all residents who enter will go into the competition to win. Ten winners will be awarded each year and receive a $100 voucher. Please complete the flyer which we sent out earlier in the month and return this to one of our offices, if you would like to know more about the competition please contact 1300 312 447.

Resident meetings and other programs We have held six resident meetings this quarter and organised with our residents, several trips to local community gardens and op-shop tours. Our staff also supported the Money Matters workshops held in the North West of Tasmania and facilitated workshops on turning Trash into Treasure. In November we held an International Men’s Day event in Somerset with our residents. For more detail please contact the Community Development Team on 1300 312 447.
