Montague Island Kitchen Garden Restoration was a recipient of the Society’s Garden Restoration Fund between the ACT Monaro Riverina Branch and the National body. Working alongside the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service volunteers from the ACT Monaro Riverina Branch have been busy planting out the next crop of vegetables.
Assisting with maintenance of the kitchen garden on Montague Island continues as an ongoing project for the ACT Riverina Monaro Branch. Following the guidelines in Colleen Morris’ award-winning Plan for the Reinstatement of the Kitchen Garden, Montague Island, a group of members joined National Parks and Wildlife staff in early May to clear the garden for the winter and to conduct winter planting. On this occasion Bill Brown, a reporter from ABC South East NSW joined the team: see his report www.abc.net.au/news/2016-06-07/montague-island-heritage-kitchen-garden-restored/7486588
