Mackie Lane
Mackie gardeners have elected the Mackie Lane Subcommittee to manage the garden.

    Chair - Peter Hook
    Garden Co-ordinator - Silvana Griffin
    Membership & Secretary MCG - Gill Lee
    Publicity & President MCG - Tina Jackson
    Material Supplies / Building - Lachlan Imrie, Chris Lee, Nick Collis-George
    Childrens’ Activities - Lindy Spencer 

The garden has been in development since October 2011 under the guidance of an MCG appointed interim committee. Our thanks go to members of the interim committee Gill Lee, Nick Collis-George, Tina Jackson and especially garden coordinator Flicc Walsh, who designed the garden, guided construction and devised the first  planting plan.

Mackie Lane  has organised gardening on Wednesday afternoons 2pm to 4 pm and Sundays 3pm to 5pm.

Bendigo Bank
We also have some very good news. Bendigo Bank has provided $1,000 sponsorship support for the Mackie Lane Community Garden. This is a significant contribution and takes some pressure off the cost of maintaining gardens.  Bendigo Bank Mosman is at Military Rd, Spit Junction.

MCG Membership
MCG membership renewals will be forwarded to members in July. if you are not already a member you can join MCG in two ways. Individual memberships are $50 pa and a family membership is $75 pa. There is a $1 joining fee.

Gardening membership fees go towards the costs of insurance, building beds, planting, maintenance and advocacy. Gardening members share in the planting, care and harvesting of beds.

MCG provides support to organisations and individuals setting up gardens and we are working with Mosman Council to establish more gardens in the suburb.
