Marble bar community garden and development

Karlka Developments Pty Ltd are pleased to announce that phase one of our garden programme has been completed ahead of schedule and under budget.

Alongside our partners, NANA Australia, and the local Marble Bar community,  our aim to provide fresh produce to local retail outlets is proving a great success.

To date, we have completed harvests of salad greens and herbs and we anticipate the productive growth of corn, sweet potato, watermelon, tomatoes and beans over the coming months.

As part of our plans, we are focusing on the ongoing development of the garden programme, including an investigation into the financial viability of producing enough crops for local retailers. The project will employ members of the community and it’s envisaged this will pathway them to employment.
