The new Beacon of Hope Community Garden is about to come to life.

Beaconhills is delighted to announce this charity initiative, aimed at helping battle food insecurity in our local community.

The College is now fast-tracking the garden project, a 75m x 25m plot at the Pakenham Campus. The garden will produce fresh vegetables to donate to Casey and Cardinia welfare organisations for local families in need.

Beaconhills currently has five thriving vegetable gardens with produce already donated and turned into meals for charity, used in food technology classes and for College menus.

When COVID-19 restrictions ease, Beaconhills will continue to tend to this garden and invite members of the community be involved in the project.

We would welcome donations such as unwanted large containers like old bathtubs to store chicken manure, sleepers and vegetable seeds and seedlings. Contact Jack.Donkers@beaconhills.vic.edu.au for more details.
