Updates from Michelle:
The Mt Eden Community Gardening Group and the Hand Weavers and Spinner Guild submitted our lease application to the Auckland City Council at the end of February.
The next step is to prepare a submission to the Arts, Sports and Recreation Committee in April to support our application. We are also going to do a visit to other Community Gardens in the area to start planning how we will use the land if we are successful.
As part of the planning we will need to get a soil analysis done as the ground was a former bowling green to identify any hazardous residues. We have been in talks with a specialist at the Manukau City Council who has already been through the same scenario and will be advising us on how to deal with any residues. So hopefully we will gain access to the land this year and start a Community Garden.
