MAKING A START: Nadia Dosenko-West and her family, husband Aaron and children Isabelle and Elijah are ready for Sunday's East Albury community garden event.

A LITTLE teacup, though not necessarily short and stout, will start to take shape at an East Albury working bee on Sunday.

Supporters of The East Albury CommUnity Garden, or TEACUP for short, will meet at the Broad Street site from 10am to install its new garden beds.

Project spokeswoman Nadia Dosenko-West said unfavourable weather had delayed the garden’s start.

Since a public information session in May, 15 people had expressed interest in taking a plot, with the proposal’s Facebook page also receiving support.

An Albury Council grant helped TEACUP acquire eight raised garden beds that were created by Berrigan Men’s Shed. Sunday’s participants are encouraged to bring items like a shovel, wheelbarrow, gloves and old newspapers.

“We’re so excited about it,” Ms Dosenko-West said.

“It’s just so nice that it’s starting to get off the ground.”
