The Denmark Community Garden

The Denmark community garden, operated by Green Skills in collaboration with the Denmark CRC, was opened in March 2019.

The garden is a sustainable, organic, community-based food garden which encourages its members and local South Coast residents to participate more actively in community life, connect with the earth, grow fresh garden produce, and enjoy doing all this in company with others in the community.

Here community gardeners can develop and try out new horticulture and food gardening skills and help give back to Denmark by contributing to this Community Garden.

The Denmark Community Garden is inclusive and accessible, holding regular free workshops and events for learning new gardening skills. Over 80 south coast residents have actively joined in workshops and events since this community garden was launched in March 2019.

The Denmark Shire Council supports the Denmark Community Garden. The Denmark Community Garden has been designed and developed to allow for accessibility and inclusiveness. The Garden is conveniently and prominently located in the heart of Denmark behind the Morgan Richardson Centre (old hospital site). now the Denmark Community Resource Centre. It is in easy walking distance of many residents in social housing and retirement villages.

Combatting dune erosion at Coogee Beach

Visitors to Coogee Beach will notice Ecojobs staff working in the dunes – not trampling, but using a technique called “brushing”.

This rehabilitation method involves using tree and shrub branches to stabilise dunes. Native branches create a microclimate that protects and shades sand, increases water infiltration, reduces erosion and wind speed, deters traffic, and traps sand. The essential conditions for revegetation.

Ecojobs team members Perry, Mitch and Ben have been working with the City of Cockburn on this coastline protection initiative.

Facilitating successful participation through expert support

Emerging Community Leadership Program’ for the Department of Regional Development,

Green Skills have brought significant experience in facilitating community engagement and supporting our leadership for sustainability initiatives. With their extensive network of regional contacts across southern WA, they helped us to recruit program participants, and to co-facilitate the program’s adult-learning workshops. The program received positive feedback from program participants and its success was, in no small measure, due to the expertise and support that Louise and Dawn brought to this project.
