It was a huge success, introducing scores of people to growing food at home. Demand for the raised veggie beds was so overwhelming, SAGE responded by establishing our Garden Partners program.
Anyone can now order a delivered and fully installed raised veggie bed from a small size model at just $200 to a larger size at $285.
The whole package contains:
- choice from a range of different raised bed garden designs
- top quality veggie mix soil from D & A Excavations, Bodalla
- organic sugar cane mulch
- local seasonal seedlings from Moruya
It’s ideal for people with busy lifestyles who want to eat healthy, fresh and organic food. It’s also suitable for people with physical limitations, but still want to garden.
We’ve calculated that up to $600 can be saved on food costs over three years!!
To help people keep gardening year after year, SAGE Garden Partners is now offering a range of additional services.
You can get help with:
- re-stocking veggie beds with high quality soil, mulch and seedlings
- advice on how to grow more of your own seasonal food
These maintenance services are charged at $30/hour per person, plus a location fee to cover members’ transport costs. Proceeds go to SAGE to continue funding the Garden Partners program.
To book your Garden Partners veggie bed installation or enquire about maintenance services, contact Kathryn on 0467 558 645 or Rob on 0412 756 010.
Following the success of the Tilba Food Share, SAGE launched Moruya’s own food share group. The SAGE Food Share takes place on the 3rd Sunday of every month, when residents of Moruya and the surrounding areas congregate at the SAGE Garden from 9.30am – 11am to swap and share their garden excess.
Food shares are a fantastic opportunity to share excess fresh or dried produce, preserves, and seeds and to take home excess product from someone else. If you don’t have excess product on the day of the food share, bring your knowledge or questions, and interact with members of your community.
The SAGE Food Share includes morning tea, with tea and coffee provided. If you have a dish or drink to share, you are welcome to bring it along with the recipe so others can learn to make and enjoy it too. The Food Share is not about placing monetary value on produce. Participants bring and take as much or as little as they would like. As long as you connect with community and respect it, food is free.
