GreenJobs Corps Group

We have a team of 10 young people (17-24yrs), working on 6-month projects on site at The Green. They are building garden beds, a chicken habitat and structures using reclaimed materials as well as propagating plants, and earning their Certificate II in Conservation and Land Management.

TAFE Certificate II in Construction Group

Great Lakes College of TAFE worked at The Green for six months, converting an old shipping container into a green library / office, building a propagation shed from reclaimed materials AND earning accredited skills in Construction.

Aboriginal Women’s Group

Ten motivated young women have their own garden at The Green. They have reused excavator tyres and corrugated tanks to create a garden designed in a flower shape (with a pond as the centrepiece) and planted with flowering, food and non-food products, annual and perennial plants. Mosaic pavers and decorative painting are all included in the design. This group was led by Margie Donnelly from Homebase Youth Service.
