The Tassievores were excited to partner with the Northern Suburbs Community Centre for the Northern launch of the Tassievore Eat Local Challenge.
With the support of Denise, Jane and the rest of the wonderful staff and volunteers, the launch was held amongst the Rocherlea Peace Garden. More than sixty community members and guests, including Michelle Byrne, Bryan Wightman and Mayor Albert Van Zetten enjoyed a tasty lunch using fresh seasonal produce from the community garden.
“There was a great deal of interest in the Challenge, and individuals along with the Peace Garden staff and volunteers signed up on the day to participate, said Ms Delphin, Manager of the Community Centre.
Community Development Officer and Garden Coordinator, Jane Chapman says “having the launch of the Tassievore Challenge at the Peace Garden was a great opportunity to promote local produce and the activities we run at the Centre.
“The Peace Garden has a huge range of fresh vegetables and fruits grown in the garden by our community volunteers, and the community lunches are a great opportunity to showcase the Challenge and eating locally”, says Ms Chapman.
Veggie Boxes, fruit boxes, fresh garden produce jams and relishes, and free range eggs are all available from the Centre, sourced from the garden. Volunteers are always welcome and required in the garden, and it’s a great opportunity to learn some new tips about growing your own vegies.
The Tasseivores would like to give a HUGE thank you to wonderful Neighbourhood Centre staff and volunteers for their support for the Tassievore Challenge and look forward to hearing how the community members and staff go with the Challenge.
