Community Garden Update

Soil testing was done by the Council in January this year on the Old  Mt Eden womens bowling green and it was found to have a high level of  carcinogenic contaminants.  This report was presented to the Eden/ Albert Community Board in March.

They been trying to decide what to  do with the site, ie: decontaminate it or not. The Community Garden group are still interested in the site and have been fundraising to put in raised beds with a barrier (Geotextile) that would prevent any contamination between the growing medium and the green. We still hope to establish a Community Garden in Mt Eden.
