Mini Farm yields more than just produce
When the Mini Farm project launched at Loganlea State High School last month, Division 6 Councillor Tony Hall was proud to be among those celebrating the important milestone.
Cr Hall is a passionate supporter of the project and sponsored one of the plots being used to help tackle the issue of food insecurity in the City of Logan.
The suburban farm also provides students with the opportunity to learn about food sustainability and farming, with the fruits of their labour donated to local charities.
The project was launched last month, thanks to a partnership between Logan City Council, CityStudio Logan, Loganlea State High School, The Mini Farm Project and Griffith University.
‘In addition to being a fantastic learning experience for the students and the school community, this project provides tangible assistance to local charities struggling to keep up with demand from Logan families doing it tough,’ Cr Hall says.
‘It’s a great feeling knowing that my donation will go towards helping a lot of people in the community who really need it.
‘It’s the first of its kind in our area, but hopefully not the last and I look forward to seeing how the farm continues to grow over the coming months.’
Cr Hall says it is not too late to support The Mini Farms Project.
‘They are still seeking donations to fund other parts of the project, so if you can’t volunteer directly, making a donation is a great way to support this very worthy community cause,’ he says.
This project was completed as part of CityStudio Logan which was operational from July 1st, 2018 to June 30th, 2023. For more information on CityStudio, please visit www.citystudioglobal.com.
