Federal Member for Page Kevin Hogan today announced a grant to install a new reticulated watering system, erect a seed-raising greenhouse and fencing at the Iluka Meals on Wheels’ kitchen garden.
“There is nothing healthier than freshly grown food from a kitchen garden,” Mr Hogan said.
“I would like to thank Iluka Meals on Wheels for the service they voluntarily give to our community.
“This grant of more than $5000 to the upgrade of their kitchen garden will make sure the older members of our community can eat more freshly grown produce.”
The expansion of the kitchen garden will allow Meals on Wheels to include more fresh vegetables and herbs in the meals they serve our seniors.
It also offers the opportunity for community members to join therapeutic gardening groups
