Oasis Update

About Oasis

We have known for years that Rainbow is an Oasis between the Big and Little Deserts but between now and the end of 2018, through the Oasis Small Town Transformations project, we aim to make this oasis even lusher, stronger and more inviting. We’ll create a low water garden, a place to exercise, skate, make beautiful music, films and art and a place to learn new things. It will be an oasis of plants, art, sights, sounds and smells for the region. A committee of locals, led by Peter Gosling, is driving this charge but we encourage everyone to get involved.

What we are doing

Heaps is the one word answer but in summary:

You can all get involved

Oasis is open to public EVERY Wednesday from 10am-4pm – Adelle the Project Manager will be there to answer any questions. We have a range of activities, workshopsnand events being held in coming months – see below. We are also running working bee’s leading up to the launch and would love some community help with the garden and building projects.
