neighbourday.org has loads of resources to help you get together with your neighbours. Their Neighbour Day is the last Sunday in March, so why not use this date to launch into a neighbourhood gathering! Note: for large, formal gatherings an application to TCCS is required. Have a look at this website to find out if this applies to your gathering.
The People and Place Group
The People and Place Group (or PPG) meets every eight weeks to receive updates on the Ginninderry Project and provide ongoing input into the development and its impact on the surrounding community in both West Belconnen and the Yass Valley. If you’d like to be involved in the Ginninderry project at a strategic level this could be the group for you. Contact our Community Development Manager through email@example.com to learn more.
Bush on the Boundary Group
The Bush on the Boundary Group provides input into environmental management and impact along the urban edge. This group is open to residents, email firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested in attending.
Our SPARK Program is the only one of its kind in Canberra, actively supporting individuals through training and employment pathways. Its great success rate has instigated its expansion throughout the greater Canberra region.
There is a small communal garden located near The Link building which opens for new applications each June. If you’re interested in signing up to the waitlist for a plot please email email@example.com.

The Link is the current project office. It has been designed to be your community hub and is a facility that can be rented out by various groups for community use. The facilities include a gallery space, meeting rooms, open plan areas, a kitchen, toilets, showers, outdoor gathering spaces, play spaces and free WiFi.
Outside there is also a BBQ area and a tandoor oven that is free to use, but needs to be booked.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for bookings of spaces.
The Link also houses a Community Library where you can bring books to share and pick up new titles up for free!
If you use a Nespresso machine you can bring your coffee pods to The Link for recycling. You can also bring your clean, empty soft drink bottles and cans in for Ginninderry to recycle to fund our choir!
