Cooktown “Club Veg” information

2010 February 11
by anthea

“Club Veg” is a gardening club established and facilitated by the Cooktown District Community Centre. Members meet monthly to share ideas, tips, cuttings and seeds. Club Veg also runs a seed bank and is helping set up a number of gardens at local venues including the Aged Care Centre. Its a great network for people in Queensland’s tropical top end to gain practical advice and support. Get in touch with David Cass if you’d like to know more (his contact details in the links below). David forwarded the ‘Club Veg Cooktown Veg Planting Guide’ and ‘What We Do at Club Veg’ to RIG Network to share with people in and around Hope Vale and Wujal Wujal after our workshops there late last year. Check them out!

    Dear David,

    Cooktown Community Housing Association Inc invited Clare Richards to speak to our tenants in regard to Healthy Communities.
    CCHA provide our tenants affordable long-term rental accommodation to those in high need with low income and disadvantaged circumstances.
    CCHA is the only Social Housing organisation in Cooktown which provides accommodation to the disabled, aged, youth, single/partnered families with children, including Indigenous and non-Indigenous tenants.
    CCHA is hoping that providing guidance from qualified organisations such as Club Veg this will help our tenants in establishing a healthy, physical lifestyle and financial saving and rewards gained from this accumalative knowledge.
    Cooktown Community Housing Association appreciates the contribution and assistance from all individuals and organisations that are helping CCHA tenants.
    We look forward to working together on this new project.
    Cheers
    Desiree Smith
