Rural Aid planted the seed, they thought it was a Mustey to support

By Kyabram Free Press

REBECCA and Paul Mustey of Kyabram and District Garden Supplies have donated a range of plants to the Kyabram Community Learning Centre for the community garden.

Rebecca heard about the garden after Rural Aid asked her to deliver some plants to the KCLC.

‘‘I had actually never been there before but once I saw it I knew they were in need of some more plants because it was such a vast area that was looking a bit bare,’’ Rebecca said.

‘‘Given that we now have the nursery here, I decided to donate some much needed plants.’’

The donation included grevilleas, grasses, lilly pillies and eremophilas as well as fertiliser in order to sustain the garden in the future.

‘‘We went for native plants that were low maintenance and water tolerant, that could brighten up the place and touch on what rural aid were doing in reviving community garden interest,’’ she said.

Rebecca also factored in the need for the animal community to be able to enjoy the area as well.

‘‘We used some plants that were bird-loving as well to try and attract some of the native wildlife into the area.’’

The garden is located at the KCLC on Lake Rd and the centre welcomes any interest or support from the community.
