Community Group’s New Garden at Nita McCrae Park
Sydney School of Arts & Humanities has a new entrance. Located within the grounds of the Harry Jensen Centre and Abraham Mott Hall at Millers Point, there’s a lovely vegetable garden thriving, thanks to Millers Point Community volunteers.
This small palace of plenty, featuring vegetables and herbs, is on display after you walk through the gate beside the hall, with many pretty layers of blooming produce, and nutritious vegetables progressing through their different stages of growth.
Named in honour of the late Nita McCrae, a Millers Point resident and founding member of the Rocks Resident Action Group, the park was officially opened on 28 November, 2017 after landscaping was carried out funded by the City of Sydney.
The lush garden provides plenty of work for the volunteers who water and weed morning and night as well as supplying vegetables and herbs they can share and take home to enjoy.
