A garden that will keep on giving GOOD things will soon be growing at Westernport Mission Centre’s community garden in Hastings. The collaborative project to promote healthy communities opened last week. The money came from a place-based Cerberus ward funding grant and $4800 from the Mornington Peninsula Community Charitable Fund. The opening was attended by Mornington Pen-

insula Shire staff, the Salvation Army’s Eastern Victoria Division and community groups. “It’s a fantastic initiative which will provide social and lifestyle benefits for everyone,” the mayor Cr Bev Colomb said. Fresh vegetables from the garden – as well as soup – will be distributed from a retrofitted van to disadvantaged people and groups, thanks to the Salvation Army in Western Port. The garden

will also support ongoing food programs run by the Salvos. Also involved in establishing the garden were Westernport Secondary College, Exxon Mobil, men’s sheds, and businesses which donated materials and money. Volunteers with a passion for gardening should call Lieutenant Laronie Thompson 5979 2751 or email
