‘We are going to go back to the original’: Victoria’s Kush Garden opens after 18 months in lockdown
Posted On July 3, 2021
Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews has said he has no regrets over opening Victoria’s kush gardens last year.
The gardens were closed after a woman died in January after being struck by a car while walking to her job.
Kush gardens reopened in late October.
Mr Andrews said he hoped the gardens would bring back some of the positive memories of the Victorian summer of 2016.
“The last few months were quite challenging for everyone and certainly we’re looking forward to seeing what’s going to come from it,” he said.
“I’ve spoken to many people about what they’re going to like about it and what they want to see from it, but I’m also looking at the positives that we can take from it.”
What’s great about the kush garden is that we are opening it up to the public and seeing what we can do to help make it better.
“Kush Garden opened in late September after a police officer was struck and killed by a drunk driver on her way home from work in Melbourne’s west.
Victoria’s kash garden reopened last year after a deadly drunk driver was struck by the driver in Melbourne in January.
