The gardens officially open on Monday, April 23 at the Centacare NQ’s Cloncurry Neighbourhood Centre. Senior Community Worker, Jo Moore, said it is a welcoming place for people to feel connected to their community.

“It’s about getting back to nature, healthy eating, social and emotional well-being. 

Centacare is a counselling service, so linking that in, it’s a safe space to come and sit and chat. A fully automatic irrigation system was installed and various vegetables have been planted by an enthusiastic under 5s playgroup from Playgroup Queensland.”

Located in Sheaffe Street, Cloncurry, the community and enthusiasts who would like to attend the opening are welcome.
