Rochedale Community Garden to proceed

Following a meeting of interested parties on the 1st July 2012 it was decided to proceed with the Rochedale Community Garden. Meetings are to be held weekly at 3pm on Sunday afternoon at the garden site (160 Rochedale Road, Rochedale) initially whilst we get some of the adminitrative matters dealt with.

It is proposed that the group will become incorporated and the meeting on the 8th July will be for that purpose with the formal election of office bearers and acceptance of the rules of the association which are to be based on the Office of Fair Trading model rules.

Membership fees have been set at $40 per annum.

From those present at the first meeting tasks have been allocated to:

  • Develop a contact list;
  • Obtain and update a copy of the model Association rules;
  • Source insurance;
  • Formulate a wish list of facilities to be available (over time) at the garden to be used a guide when developing the site plan.
