Consistent with its own objectives, the House also fosters new start-up groups.  For instance, it is working currently to develop a community garden and Pomona Men’s shed organisation.  We aim to boost volunteerism locally.In addition, through Cooroora Connect, Pomona’s monthly community newspaper, we publicise our own program of activities and promote the work of others.If you want to do any of the following then come along to Pomona and District Community House:
