Rita Ziolkowski - Verge Garden Competition Winner

Mr MARK COURE (Oatley)

—Speaker, I would like to congratulate an incredibly talented member of our community, Rita Ziolkowski. Rita recently was named the winner of Georges River Council's Verge Garden Competition. This is a wonderful initiative that promotes sustainability, whilst aiming to beautify our local area. Rita has planted a colourful little garden on her verge strip, which I must say, looks absolutely stunning. For her efforts, she was awarded a $250 voucher to use at a local plant nursery. What a wonderful initiative by Georges River Council to keep our streets green. The St George area is already one of the most gorgeous parts of Sydney and this is thanks, in part, to residents like Rita. I am committed to creating a sustainable future for the next generation of locals, and I will continue to work hard to ensure that our local environment is protected and as beautiful as it can be. I would like to once again commend Rita, as well as encourage other residents to get involved in creating their very own sustainable green spaces where they can.
