LOCAL green thumbs finally got their wish. After much toing and froing, Coffs Harbour City councillors have moved to approve a community garden on part of the Combine Street Reserve.

Community gardens are not just an important source of fresh produce, they provide spaces for community interaction, decision making, problem solving, creativity and celebration. They are places for creating new social connections and releasing the stresses of everyday life.
