CMC Community Garden flourishes

In June last year, CMC embarked on a Community Garden project in partnership with the University of Melbourne in Hawthorn where CMC’s head office is located.

The aim of the Community Garden is to bring staff and CMC's partners together to cultivate and share the produce of the garden.

CMC's Human Resources Manager Nicole Stephens said the CMC Community Garden is in full swing with lots of produce growing and being used in the CMC Café.

"At the moment, we are growing cucumbers, zucchinis, tomatoes and an array of herbs," Nicole said.

"We are cultivating and using our grown produce to be included in our healthy salads for lunch on Fridays in the CMC Cafe. Lunch is made by our in-house cook Tony with all proceeds from the lunch donated to our charity partner Very Special Kids."

"Our Community Garden working group are rostered to tend to the garden on a daily basis including duties such as watering the garden, turning the soil, weeding and fertilising and picking the produce when it's ready,” she said.

"Our produce is then put in a basket in the CMC kitchen for staff to take home if it's not used in the kitchen for our lunch."
