Thank you everyone who came by our Bunning's snag-tent yesterday to grab a bite! The event was a delicious success.
The event fundraised around $1,200 from the sausage sizzle and our sponsors. We hit the $700 target for our community garden defibrillator plus more! The additional funds will be directed towards future events and assisting TCA to serve our community better.
A huge thanks to our TCA president Lani and secretary Helen for organising this event. Many love to our volunteers, Kathy, Mike, Tynille, Natalie, Daran, Wagish, Kevin, Chris, Marie, Mai, Ivana, Amy, and Louise, for taking out their time to help in this event. We also have a special visit from Deputy Mayor Lee-Anne Smith who has always been a strong supporter of TCA. Lee-Anne surprised us with her hand-made TCA aprons! We were proud to wear them.
Last but not least, we would like to thank all the patrons for taking your time out on Sunday to support our initiative. It was heartwarming to see many fellow residents (Calleyans), bringing their families along for a quick bite.
We, here at TCA, are grateful at the amount of encouragement and support from within the estate and from the surrounding suburbs. Thank you again. We could not have done it without you!
P.S. We have our Calleya Family Olympics next Sunday 6th October @ 10 am. See you there!
What is the best thing to do on a beautiful Sunday morning?
That is, of course, bring your family down to our new-ish Treeby Community Oval on Clementine Blvd and join the Treeby Family Olympics. Organised by the TCA and sponsored by City of Cockburn.
The event is open to all residents of Treeby and to all ages. Just bring your hat, water bottle, slap on some sun-screen, and put on your game face.
Treeby Family Olympic is on Sunday, 6th October 2019. Starting at 10am and finish at 1pm. There will be many fun activities and prizes to be won! We've got sack racing, giant tic-tac-toe, soccer, totem tennis, and much much more.
You may have noticed that construction for the long-awaited community garden has commenced. It was once a barren sandpit, but now there are structures and planter boxes spotted throughout.
A huge thanks to the team at Stockland Calleya, our supportive Deputy Mayor and East Ward Councillors, and our Treeby Community Association (TCA) executive team for making this happen.
A community garden is a place where people come together to grow a variety of vegetables, herbs, and fruits. TCA believes that urban agriculture can be beneficial to the environment, and the health and wellbeing of community members. The introduction of community garden provides opportunities for both recreational gardening and growing food for consumption. Gardens also contribute to the biodiversity of species and help to support populations of pollinators. Finally, a community garden brings people together by engaging residents in a positive initiative.
The garden is still at the primal stage with a target completion date of early-November. There will be a 'planting day' event to officiate the opening of the community garden, but that will be advised when we receive the confirmation.
Joining a community garden does not just provide fresh food and a great social network, but it also encourages us to eat more veggies and improves our neighbourhood environment. In a time where less and less children know where food comes from, becoming a part of a community garden will also help kids learn and connect with the food they eat.
If you are interested in getting your hands dirty at our Calleya Community Garden, please don't hesitate and send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or message us at our TCA Facebook page.
