Posted on: Sat 29 May 2021

An environmental themed mural has recently been completed as part of an upgrade program for the Plympton Community Garden Centre. West Torrens Council members and staff, merged forces with local artist Ella Simpson, and volunteer gardeners to bring the collaborative art piece together in an effort to fortify community, enhance connection and add vibrancy to the backdrop of the shared garden space.

West Torrens Mayor, Michael Coxon, Community Development Officer Vanessa Green, and Plympton Community Garden Centre volunteer and painter Tracey Preston speak with Festival City’s Emma Wotzke about their feelings on the completion of the project, the value of public art in the local area and some of the processes involved in the collaborative art piece.
