We expect to have the Community Garden up and functional by the end of 2021. This too will be a safe and comfortable place for people to “grow stuff and pick stuff”, to meet with others and to be supported by The Hub at Guyra.
In time we will be looking for Volunteers to provide that support and comfort, to help the youth and or others that may just need an outside space to sit for a while and enjoy our beautiful garden!!.
We are always looking for membership to the Hub at Guyra, this provides you with enjoyable meetings and getting to know exactly what we do in our community.
