Western Sydney garden grows with SITA community grant

13/06/2014

SITA has awarded Western Sydney’s historic community garden, Mamre House and Farm, a $5,000 grant to assist with upgrades to the farm.  

SITA's New South Wales, Sales and Business Development Manager, Geoff Gerard presented the $5,000 grant to Mamre House and Farm CEO, Rosemary Bishop at a cheque handover ceremony during celebrations to welcome in Refugee Week.

On the day, Mamre House and Farm also hosted an African pop-up café, which sold food made from fresh produce grown from Mamre House farm.

Ms Bishop said Mamre House was delighted to receive the SITA Community Grant, as it will provide much needed improvements to the accessibility and amenity of the community farm. It will also support refugee families to grow their native produce and learn how to adapt their considerable agricultural skills to the Australian environment. 

“The grant will assist us to enhance our community farm and garden through upgrades to garden beds and improvements on onsite composting activities, as well as an upgrade to the water irrigation system.”

“SITA is proud to support Mamre House and Farm with a $5,000 grant to assist in new infrastructure and encourage engagement with the diverse range of communities who work and volunteer at Mamre House and Farm.” 

Mamre House and Farm is a fantastic example of a community organisation that is making a real difference to the diverse community in Western Sydney,” said Mr Gerard.

SITA launched the first national community grant program for the waste and resource recovery industry in Australia in October 2013.

“Through our grants program,SITA is looking to support projects that grow community involvement in social and environmental programs and will be looking for round two applicants in the near future,” said Mr Gerard.
