2015 Sydney Community Garden Regional MeetUP at Charlie’s Garden

2015 Sydney Community Garden Regional MeetUP at Charlie’s Garden

Story by Russ Grayson, December 2015

IN WHAT IS PROBABLY Sydney’s smallest community garden, visitors on Sunday got a big welcome at Charlie’s Garden.

The visitors were attending the Australian City Farms & Community Gardens Network’s Sydney seasonal get-together. The get-togethers are informal events that mix tours of the gardens, plenty of tasty food and conviviality and they are advertised on the Network’s Facebook. The previous get-together was at Pittwater Community Gardens and, the season before that, at Camden Community Garden.

Charlie’s Garden location of last Sunday’s gathering is a tiny, 9×9.5m garden forming part of the multi-use Charles Kernan Reserve in inner urban Darlington. It is a diverse mix of herbs and veggies, flowers, and small fruit trees plus a sophisticated composting system.

Thanks to the Charlies gardeners for hosting this great way to spend a warm Sunday afternoon in Sydney.
