Mundoolun Estate Community and Environmental group have received a EnviroGrant from the Logan City Council.
The group was awarded $4980, but they need more volunteers in order for them to use the money effectively.
The environmental grants program aims to enhance and protect nature and foster sustainable practices across Logan through community awareness and participation.
There are two types of grants through the program, one for projects, research and education and one for wildlife carers.
The Mudoolun Estate Community and Environmental group have also been chosen to run the new Mundoolun Community Centre.
This tied in well with their proposal to create a community garden.
Funding received by the group will go towards the garden project for edging, soil, compost and various equipment such as wheelbarrows and shovels.
Immediate past president Michael Goebel said he hoped people of Mundoolun would volunteer so the garden would get off the ground.
“We want produce to go to the workers and volunteers and any left over produce can be sold to the community,” he said.
“We hope to get nice gardens and garden beds as well, to create a romantic environment for the community centre, which we hope will be used by wedding parties and other parties.
“We will be supported by the Jimboomba Community Garden group as well.”
The garden beds will be raised to ensure ease of access and rather than several small beds there will be three or four larger beds to share.
Mr Goebel said the garden provided the opportunity for fellowship.
“People can work on something together,” he said.
“The children can understand where food comes from.”
Head along to the Mundoolun Community Centre on July 23 to show your volunteering support at the next group meeting.
The meeting will commence at 9am and there will be a barbecue.
