Food forest plan
North Canberra Community Council returned a
number of executive members at its October
Mike Hettinger remains as chairman, Greg
Zwajgenberg is his deputy, Leon Arundell
(secretary) and Bruce Smith (treasurer).
Committee members elected were Waltraud
Pix, Marcus Hipkins, Jochen Zeil, Geoff
Davidson and Marianne Albury-Colless.
The guest presentation covered progress of
the Lyneham commons food forest. The
proposal involves cultivating and sharing an
open tree-based food growing space in an urban
area. The food forest is proposed to be located
at a public open space near Lyneham shops and
Lyneham Primary School.
An expression of interest has been lodged
with Territory and Municipal Services Minister
Shane Rattenbury with work continuing on site
design ideas informed by engagement and
consultation with the community.
Later in the meeting, the council passed a
motion calling on the ACT government, if it
does build the light rail, to commit to:
Building all of the 15 light rail stops shown
in the Capital Metro Industry briefing
presentation of September 15 unless there is a
business case that clearly demonstrates the
advantages of having fewer stops
Publishing the criteria it intends to use to
determine which stops to retain
Conducting public consultation on which
stops should be retained.
Since the meeting, the council has engaged
with issues affecting Dickson section 72, the
area bounded by Cowper Street, Antill Street,
Dickson district playing fields and Dickson
The area is presently zoned CZ6, (leisure and
accommodation), which allows community
facilities but not residential developments. The
ACT government has proposed to add
residential uses and conducted a workshop at
Dickson College on October 20. The council
received negative feedback about the workshop
and is engaging with government
representatives to discuss its concerns.
The final council meeting for the year is on
Wednesday, November 19, from 7.30pm at
ACT Sports House, 100 Maitland Street,
The meeting will start off with a presentation
by Capital Metro on the light rail project.
All inner north residents who would like
information or have questions to ask about light
rail are encouraged to attend.
Residents who cannot attend the meeting can

convener and office manager
Catherine Stafford said the idea
was to cook with fresh,
seasonal food and use organic
produce from the garden to
learn new ideas.
"We all cook the same thing
week after week for our
families. We get a bit bored of
it so it s about bringing in
different ideas and sharing
recipes," she said.
"There were a number of
mums who have never cooked
and never even watched their
mum cook ... as we were
showing them what to do, their
skills were very minimal.
They had no idea how to
measure flour for a cake."
Ms Stafford said it was about
providing a fun and interesting
learning environment so
anyone can come and join in.
"We re all sharing tips and
learning different things too,"
The class costs $5 per person
and will run on Wednesdays
from 11am at the Canberra
Baptist Church at 11 Currie
