Fabulous Fairfield

Fabulous Fairfield winners for April 2016.

Council established the Fabulous Fairfield program as a way of thanking our residents who take the time and effort to help make our City beautiful.

Tonight we congratulate residents from Fairfield, Fairfield Heights, Cabramatta West, Edensor Park, Prairiewood and Bossley Park.

Selecting the gardens this month was not difficult, even after Sydney's longest spell of 26+C days in a row (39 days) with no rain.

All the gardens are looking neat and attractive with everyone is putting a lot of attention into the lawns and surrounds.

An Edensor Park resident has a vegetable garden and fruit trees from which he makes his own wine and many gardeners are now planting fruit trees to make their gardens more sustainable.

Many more gardeners are building vegetable gardens and have tanks, which are making their homes more self-reliant and are definitely being “green” in their efficiencies.

I would like to congratulate the recipients of the April Fabulous Fairfield awards as the standard this month has been very high.

Tonight, our Fabulous Fairfield residents will receive a native plant grown by the Fairfield Community Native Plant Nursery volunteers. More than 190 different native plants are grown by this group of volunteers, who are based at our Nalawala Urban Sustainability Hub.

Councillors, would you please join me in congratulating tonight’s winners of the Fabulous Fairfield program.
