Trellis Session: Concepts and Capacities

  1. Katrina Stratton (Curtin, UWA, Wanslea)

  2. Peg Davies (Earthwise)

  3. Kathleen Burton (CEO Perth City Farm)

  4. Thom Scott (President Trillion Trees)


Here are some thoughts from this session:

Reorganising and the need for sourcing money. Also, to consider what you want to do and thinking about who else wants that, with relevance to finances.

Saying ‘no’ to offers or suggestions can be empowering.

It would be great to further discuss; Employing a garden coordinator, funding the costs and managing the employee.

The power of impact to source funds and the telling of our story to demonstrate the impact….these would be aspects for further exploration.

Thoughts to take away from the session would be….Don’t sell yourself cheap, abundance goes well beyond money and the using of grant money to build infrastructure.

‘Could you?’ thinking becomes ‘Can we?’


ABOUT US
The WA Community Garden Network (WACGN) is an informal network of WA community gardens and their supporters. Established in 2004, the network has played a significant role in bringing together people involved in community gardens to share ideas and skills, work collaboratively and provide a voice for the community garden sector in WA.

 

The WA Community Garden Gathering 2018 Committee first met in May 2017 in North Perth. The Committee meets regularly (every 2 weeks) with three working groups; Planning, Engagement and Strategic Direction, busily working to bring to fruition an event with a difference. Our meetings often run late into the night as we discuss, debate and imagine this event together. We are excited and hope you will be too!
