The club has been supporting Marymead’s Urban Land Community Harvest (MULCH) since its inception. Today, Community Service Director Roger Powell presented another significant donation to help in the continued development of this excellent project.

MULCH is a market gardening project that enables young adults with disabilities to learn new skills, connect with others and be engaged in horticultural enterprise.

Previously the garden was established next to the Marymead site in Narrabundah but has recently had to relocate to Stirling. The relocation is no small task, as virtually everything needs to be recreated. Garden beds, sheds, composting and far more. Because this is a project designed to provide opportunity and support to people with a variety of disabilities, there are many considerations to be made in order to provide adequate care and opportunities for the range of participants.
