The Shoalhaven Anti-Poverty Committee (SAPC) is pleased to announce that, in partnership with Shoalhaven Neighbourhood Services, we will be working with Nowra East Pride and the Nowra East Primary School Permaculture Garden to foster community connections through our Make Healthy Normal project.
The project aims to bring together people from a diverse range of cultures to work with, and alongside, the children of the Nowra East Primary School and the residents of Nowra East in the Permaculture Garden. It will provide individuals with a great opportunity to share their own knowledge and learn from others as well as strengthen community ties.
"When communities are connected people are healthier, feel safer, local economies expand, businesses succeed, education grows, support systems become more efficient," SAPC Facilitator Judith Reardon said.
"We hope many people from the diverse cultures living in the Shoalhaven will come along to our first meeting to talk about how they might get involved in the Garden," Ms Reardon added.
The first meeting of the Make Healthy normal project will be held on Wednesday 17th January at 4.00pm at the Nowra East Primary School Permaculture Garden in Journal Street.
Members of the local multi-cultural community are invited to come along and talk about how they might help create a multicultural garden, become a guest cook for the children, contribute to a neighbourhood dinner or help at the monthly working bees.
This project is funded by the NSW Government.
