Kurrajong Waratah Community Engagement Manger, Cathie Smith said Inland Rail’s support had come at a crucial time.
“We exist to make a difference in the lives of people with a disability and to create an inclusive community where people from all walks of life can reside together,” Ms Smith said.
“Our community garden is a major part of our engagement activities and this support from Inland Rail will enable us to have a shade area that is a vital piece of the puzzle here at Hildasid Farm.
The farm is set on 282 acres of picturesque open space.
“What we’ve created at Kurrajong for people with a disability is a reason to get up every day. The benefits of Inland Rail as a major employer to the Wagga community are crucial for the exchange of goods and services,” Ms Smith said.
The next round of applications for the Inland Rail Community Sponsorships and Donations program close on 31 October 2020. Visit for more information.
