There seems to be a lot of furious agreement around the traps that community gardens are great.
To that end Simon Corbell has announced what he’d do for them if re-elected:
If re-elected in 2012, ACT Labor will fund 10 more community gardens across Canberra in existing suburbs to make our community places and spaces even better.
We will provide an additional $200,000 over four years in capital funding to establish the community gardens through a new Community Garden Funding Program.
This funding commitment is in addition to our existing commitment to cut red tape in the establishment and operation of community gardens.
