Over the last 2 months Southern Cross Housing (SCH) Communities Assist team have been working with CareSouth, the Royal Botanical Garden’s in Sydney and Bunnings in Nowra to create a community garden for the residents at one of our supported living complexes in Nowra. Residents have learnt how to create a wicking bed (self-watering garden), collect seeds and how to grow vegetables. The vegetables that have been grown by the residents have gone from the garden bed to the kitchen!
