Bluff Rd Estate summer garden fun

News

With a beautiful summer upon us, Connect Health & Community has had fun in the sun with the residents of the Bluff Rd Housing Estate, encouraging them to embrace the beauty of their grounds with three days of garden-based school holiday activities for all residents.

Bluff Rd Estate residents enjoyed coming together for a garden party at their home among the gum trees

The celebrations continued building on residents’ connection to their common social space which features expansive grassed areas and significant eucalyptus trees which provided a beautiful, shady spot for the fun.

With the assistance of Castlefield Community Centre, Lions Sandringham, Family Life and Bayside City Council, more than 35 residents helped make and paint tyre gardens, create a transportable plastic sunflower garden and celebrate their efforts at a garden party.

Over the coming months we will investigate the opportunity to build a community garden so residents can work together to grow and share their own vegetables on the estate.
