A new colourful art feature lines the shed within The Precinct’s community garden created by Street Artist, NITSUA.

Over the past six months up to 30 community members have helped build the community garden, who have inspired this new addition.

The Byron Bay mural artist created the artwork of Blue-Banded Bees, some of the critters that frequent the garden, as well as delicious vegetables being grown.

“It’s inspired by the local community here to the garden, so wherever I go and where I paint I’m subject to the area and what people want to see with the artwork,” NITSUA said.

“As you see the garden and Blue-Banded Bees, that was my subject. “That’s what the community wanted to do being that Blue-Banded Bees are prominent in the area and of course the garden being the community garden.”

The artwork supports the garden members’ mission to create a vibrant and welcoming space for all.

These community members have been busy bees themselves planting seeds, setting up wicking beds, compost and worm farms.

If you would like to learn more or get involved, come along to our weekly garden catch ups held Mondays and Fridays 9.30 am to 11.30am at The Precinct, located at 112 Coventry Road in Smithfield Plains.
