Green Hub Community Garden
The Fitzgibbon Chase Community Garden, which is called the Green Hub, offers a great place for residents to connect, learn, share ideas, and of course, to garden.
The Green Hub was gifted to the community by Economic Development Queensland (EDQ) for the purpose of enhancing the local environment and nurturing a community garden.
More than two and a half years of planning and preparation went in to the development of the Green Hub, and the first crops where planted in August 2013.
