EPIC Project

The EPIC Garden will be developed over a period of time.  The EPIC team will engage in community consultation when considering works to be done in the Garden to ensure that everyone has an opportunity of being involved in the development of this wonderful project.  It is extremely important to the EPIC Team to involve the community in all aspects of the Project.
